    Hi Sir,
    May i know is there any notification saying that the new sett off rules has been updated in the GST portal(July 2019) .

  2. i have downloaded your GST offset liability calculator as per new rule. Its very useful. i would like to point out one problem that in the sheet name proportionate manner reverse charges column formula is not update. Since on filing reverse charges amount in set off sheet , it should come by default in second sheet. moreover total tax payable including RCM is also showing without RCM payable. so please update it.
