Reply To: VAT items sent to USA

If you’re exporting goods, you won’t need to declare the 20% UK VAT – provided that you retain evidence of export. There may be a liability to sales and/or import taxes in the USA – could that be what the 8% / 8.75% figures are? If so, this would need to be accounted to their tax authorities – you can’t just include it in your UK VAT return.
