C1 = (t1/T) X C
where, “C” is the amount of credit to be distributed, “t1” is the turnover, as referred to in section 20, of person Ri during the relevant period, and “T” is the aggregate of the turnover of all recipients to whom the input service is attributable in accordance with the provision of section 20 during the relevant period;

(i) reduced from the amount to be distributed in the month in which the credit note is included in the return in Form GSTR-6; and
