If the mobile phone bills are used for personal purposes, you cannot claim VAT in UAE as it is not a business expense

No, you cannot claim VAT on mobile phone bills used for personal use in UAE. According to the Federal Tax Authority (FTA)’s 6 December 2021 release of a public clarification, input tax on phones and packages acquired for use by employees will be recoverable provided the business has a strict policy in place to restrict the use to business purposes¹. The clarification lays out criteria for claiming VAT on employees’ phones. The employer must acquire phones, airtime and/or data packages solely for business purposes and have an appropriate policy to restrict the use of the phones to business purposes.

I am not a tax expert, but generally speaking, if you use a mobile phone for both personal and business purposes, it may be possible to claim VAT (Value Added Tax) on the portion of the bill that relates to your business usage. However, the specific rules regarding VAT reclamation can vary depending on the country and tax jurisdiction you are in.


In some countries, you may be required to keep detailed records of your business and personal usage, such as call logs or data usage, in order to calculate the portion of the bill that is eligible for VAT reclamation. It's important to consult with a tax professional or local tax authority in your country to understand the specific regulations and requirements related to claiming VAT on mobile phone bills for personal and business use.


Remember, tax laws and regulations can change over time, so it's always best to seek up-to-date advice from a qualified professional to ensure compliance with the applicable tax rules in your jurisdiction.
