Entry for Sales Return is opposite of Sales

We know that Sales Entry is

Party Dr

To Sales


So, Sales Return entry will be

Sales Return Dr

To Party

(Instead of Sales Return Account, some people use Sales Account which is also correct)


Similarly, Entry for Sales Return with GST will be

Sales Return Dr

Output GST Dr

To Party



Output GST will be Debited, (not Input) because When we sell we have to pay output. We return goods, we reduce this output
