Electricity and Water Authority (EWA) chief executive Shaikh Nawaf bin Ibrahim Al Khalifa has said that the authority is set to complete all technical aspects of an electronic system that allows citizens to claim refunds on VAT paid on the consumption of electricity and water. He noted that EWA’s efforts are in line with His Majesty King Hamad’s instructions to review the mechanisms of applying VAT during its trial period, in addition to royal directives issued in 2000 reducing the cost of domestic electricity from six to three fils and the introduction of government subsidies on citizens’ primary residences in 2015.
