Hello everybody, hope you'll are doing well.
I have only recently started my manufacturing firm, so please excuse me if I am not an expert at Taxation & Accounting. I have a problem that needs a solution (if there can be one).
I had supplied my ordered goods to the client on 30th March and had left the invoice with one of the workers assuming it will reach the right hands. Now it has turned out that the invoice was never accounted for. It was on the 15th of May, when I followed up for my balance payment (I have gone through a lot of problems in the last 6 weeks due to Covid, so this slipped out of my head). On 15th May I realized this invoice was not accounted for, no GRN (Goods Received Note) was not generated. The invoice was lying exactly where I had left it and never reached the accounts dept.
Now I have filed my GSTR1 and so has the client. Is there a provision through which this back-dated invoice can be accounted for now, by the client? Otherwise I stand to lose the balance payment.
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!
