in case of a progress payment, a retention is made, the retention should be taxed only at the time the retention will be paid (in future). At the time of supply, only the “net progress payment” should be charged to VAT. Retention should be charged at the rate prevailing at the time of payment.

How to declare withheld retention amount to revenue?

If we take retention value as revenue at the time of retention is paid, it will come to PL without any cost because the cost related to particular retention has been made one or two years back. So there would be unnecessary profit at the year which the retention is paid back.
