Hi wfhauto The answer will depend on whether you are VAT registered or not. If you are not VAT registered then you cannot reclaim VAT you have paid or charge VAT on sales. If you are VAT registered then then you would account for VAT paid on purchases in your VAT return effectively reclaiming it. Sales out of the UK can be zero rated (ie you charge VAT but at a zero rate) provided you have proof of export such as the customs export declaration .
