also check weather date of invoice is in 12-13
if invoice date is 11-12 then you have to book sale in transit and claim vat set off in the year 2011-12
otherwise vat set off will not allow by vat department.

how discount received (500) can account for in 29th March 2011 when goods not received ? is this discount on payment ? in question payment to vendor is 9500 (10000-500) instead of 9000.
where is goods in transit account ? on what basis payment has made ? if on performa invoice basis than it should route through goods in transit.
