The books of accounts are closed on 31st March every year.
An invoice dated 31st March has been received by a company for which goods are received by the company on 4th of April in the subsequent year. The invoice suffer ED and VAT.
What is the accounting procedure?

Normally date of receipt of Materials alone will be considered. If its before 31st you can account since you are going to submit your VAT returns only in next month. Some company use to make even provision entries for these type of transactions.
