Accounting with GST – Purchase


Despite people taking accounting courses in Ahmedabad, Tally courses in Ahmedabad, GST courses in Ahmedabad, at times, we find due to clerical errors and lack of due diligence Accountants in Ahmedabad cause loss to their clients.

Hence, in our series of articles explaining accounting with GST today we will discuss purchase accounting with GST.

When we make purchase, we actually pay GST to the vendor/creditor. Under GST mechanism, we will then get credit of GST paid to the vendor. So it is very important for us to do this section very carefully.

Let us take a practical case to get accounting training / GST training in this matter.

Rittal Enterprise in Ahmedabad is a textile trading firm based at Ahmedabad. They purchase readymade shirts from Vittal Enterprise in Ahmedabad, a shirts manufacturer based at Ahmedabad.

Suppose Rittal Ahmedabad have purchased 1,000 nos. of shirts @ Rs. 500/- from Vittal Ahmedabad. Hence, total purchase value is Rs. 5,00,000/-

Now from the lookup of our GST training, we got to know that GST @ 5% is applicable on these kinds of products. Since the purchase is within state CGST @ 2.5% and SGST @ 2.5% will be applicable on this transaction. Since this is a purchase transaction these will be input GST. Input CGST Rs. 12,500/- and Input SGST Rs. 12,500/- will be paid to the vendor.

Now let us understand accounting effect in the books of Rittal Enterprise Ahmedabad:

Purchase of trading goods will always debited in the books of accounts. So, Purchase A/c Dr. Rs. 5,00,000/-. Input CGST and SGST are credits receivable hence they are debited in the books of accounts by Rs. 12,500/- each. The goods are purchased on credit hence Rittal Enterprise Ahmedabad is yet to pay to Vittal Enterprise Ahmedabad. So, Vittal Enterprise Ahmedabad is a creditor and their account need to be credited. So, final entry will look like as below:

Purchase A/c Dr.   Rs. 5,25,000/-
Input CGST Dr.      Rs. 12,500/-
Input SGST Dr.      Rs. 12,500/-
To Vittal Ent. Cr.    Rs. 5,25,000/-
