Input VAT recovery is possible on vehicles and mobile phones within Bahrain and the National Bureau for Revenue (NBR) where there is both business and personal use.
The NBR has released guidance on how to determine a fair and reasonable allocation as well as a simplified method that can be applied to make the calculation. Under the simplified method, a fixed percentage is used to determine business and personal use; 40% fixed on all costs for motor vehicles and 60% fixed costs for mobile phones.
