Time of Supply factor
To know about the exact time of tax payment, one has to know about the laws regarding the time of supply factor. The clauses are written under Section 12 of the Central Goods and Service Tax Act, 2017.
Section 12 (2) of the Central Goods and Service Tax Act, 2017 states that the time of supply of goods should be either date of circulation of invoice or the date on which the supplier gets the payment. The earlier one will be preferred.
The time of supply with respect to advance received would be the date on which the supplier gets the payment.

The total figure of the advance amount received needs to be written in the head part known as ‘Gross Advance Received / Adjusted’. The inter-related tax liability should be written in the ‘integrated’ head in case of inter-state stocks and should be written in the ‘Central’ and ‘State/ UT’ head if the case is of intra-state stocks.
