Entry for Purchase Return is opposite of Purchase
We know that Purchase Entry is
Purchase Dr
To Party
So purchase Return entry will be
Party Dr
To Purchase Return
(Instead of purchase Return Account, some people use Purchase Account which is also correct
Similarly, Entry for Purchase Return with GST will be
Party Dr
To Purchase Return
To Input GST
Input GST will be credited ,not Output because when we purchase, we take ITC. If we return goods, we reduce this ITC and not pay output)


Lets understand this with the help of examples
