GST on Inward Remittance of Service Value

You can pay GST on the inward remittance of service value and capture it in GSTR-3B .

Consider the scenario where 18% GST has to be charged on an inward remittance of Rs. 2,750 for the service value of Rs. 4,50,000. As the inward remittance is part of the service value, it should not affect the books of accounts, but the GST amount has to appear in GSTR-3B as eligible input tax credit.
