No, the graduation party hosted for personal reasons is not eligible for VAT reimbursement.

If the graduation party was hosted for personal purposes, you cannot claim VAT in UAE as it is not a business expense

VAT can be claimed by businesses for goods and services used for business purposes. The VAT incurred on expenses for personal activities is not recoverable.

In the UAE, VAT can typically be reclaimed by businesses for goods and services used for business purposes. However, the VAT incurred on expenses for personal activities or non-business related activities, such as hosting a graduation party, is generally not recoverable. 


The Federal Tax Authority (FTA) in the UAE has set specific rules and conditions for VAT recovery. According to these rules, VAT can only be reclaimed if it is incurred for making taxable supplies (i.e., goods or services that are subject to 5% or 0% VAT), or if it is incurred for making supplies that would be taxable if made in the UAE.


Therefore, unless the graduation party was directly related to your business activities and the villa was rented for business purposes, it is unlikely that you would be able to reclaim the VAT.

I'm not a tax expert, but I can provide some general information. Whether or not you can claim Value Added Tax (VAT) for hosting a graduation party in a villa depends on the specific tax laws and regulations in your country or jurisdiction. VAT rules can vary significantly from one place to another, so it's important to consult with a tax professional or the relevant tax authority in your area to get accurate and up-to-date information.


In some cases, VAT may be applicable to rental services such as booking a villa, but whether you can claim it back would depend on the purpose of the event and the rules governing VAT reclaims in your jurisdiction. Typically, VAT reclaims are more commonly associated with business-related expenses rather than private events. However, there may be specific circumstances or allowances that apply, so it's best to seek guidance from a tax expert familiar with the regulations in your area.
