Advance payment in GST 0% and balance on SST 6%?

Hi, my company paid an advance payment to order goods on Aug’18 which the supplier gave us a tax invoice charged with GST 0%. But when the goods delivered on Oct’18, the supplier billed the balance in sub-total, but charged SST 6% on total including the advance payment.

Should they charged us in total including advance payment? Or only billed us the balance amount? Since the advance payment already filled into GST at first.

Thank you.

But the advance payment already billed with GST and filled into Aug’18 GST. Doesn’t this form a double submission to custom?

Actually it is not a double submission of tax but merely tax incurred at two different era.  One more thing, since you have mentioned that your August, 2018 incurred GST.  But did you know that at that time (w.e.f. 1/6/2018 GST repealed) the rate for GST is 0%?  Why your supplier charged GST @ 6%?  They have done wrong and not in accordance of the announcement?

Then for invoice bill in October, 2018 the supplier has the right to charge SST @ 6% (w.e.f. 1/9/2018).  In that case you need to have some discussion with supplier.  What they have charged you on the advance payment in August, 2018 should be GST @ 0% (GST repealed w.e.f. 1/6/2018).
