select t1.qty - t2.received_qty
from   table1 t1 inner join table2 t2 on =

use LEFT JOIN if you may not have the corresponding record in table2

Time is always against us

SELECT id,description,SUM(qty) - SUM(received_qty) AS Remaining
SELECT id,description,qty,CAST(0 AS int) AS received
FROM table1
SELECT id,description,0,received_qty
FROM table2
GROUP BY id,description
