Tax payable = (O+P)-I
Where ‘O’ denotes the output tax payable for any tax period as determined under Section 15, â€˜Pâ€™ denotes the purchase tax paid by a registered dealer for any tax period as determined under Section 10 and ‘I’ denotes the input tax paid or payable and includes tax paid on Entry of Goods, for the said tax period as determined under Section 15.
(2) The tax payable by a dealer liable to pay tax but not registered under this Act for a tax period shall be equal to the output tax payable for the said tax period as determined under Section 15.
(3) If the amount calculated under sub-section (1) is a negative quantum-
(a) the same shall be adjusted against the tax liability, if any, under the Act as well as under the Central Sales Tax Act, 1956.
(b) any amount of credit, remaining even after such adjustment shall be carried forward to the next tax period(s).
