      Hi Vivek

      As you know , in this example,  customs MIRO executed before MIGO and Import IGST is debit at payment time itself.  however as per GST law compliance, import IGST input should account post MIGO. can you help to share work around for first pay advance to customs vendor and account MIGO and Customs MIRO & implications in case goods consumed before we post customs MIRO??
