Buyers tin number in sales invoice


03 January 2013  

A Seller has given a wrong TIN number of the Buyer in the Sales Invoice and the monthly online returns were also filed. Now the buyer has received notice from their sales tax department, rejecting their claim for Input Tax Credit. The buyer is claiming this differential tax amount from the seller.

Is the buyer intention is right ??. Is there any other way to rectify this error. Is any provision of the Sales Tax Act/Notification/Circular, describes this situation ?
