    Hi so VAT is not an expense or a cost to a US company. When someone purchases a product you are selling in another country upon checkout the customer is charges VAT. In your books, you would record the Gross income and the VAT collected would be placed on the balance sheet. VAT is usually remitted quarterly so when you get ready to pay the VAT you are remitting what you have been holding (the amount collected from the customers) and sending that to the correct Revenue Office.
