A combined reading of the aforesaid provisions shows that under Rule 54(3) of the HVAT Rules, the buyer is required to produce the tax invoice, its name and TIN number entered on it. However, the question would be whether the purchaser can be penalized where the seller does not comply with the same. In our opinion, the answer would be in the negative.
