    I see. Btw, could you explain more on what you had mentioned: “In order to reverse the negative amount from column 5b to 6b, you need to pass the following journal entry”.

    I don’t really understand for the code used of Dt Input and Ct Output. And is it the amount just for the CN?

    I gladly appreciate if you can provide an advice. Thanks

      The reversal is specifically for GST-03 return. You debit and credit the taxable amount to generate the output tax amount to be report in GST-03

    Kindly check the column 5(a) before the adjustment and after adjustment

      The CN issued will reflect to column 5a for value of supply. When you do adjustment it will add back the actual value of supply and also reverse the negative output to input
