Can I claim VAT via return on the inputs from Israel?

This answer was rated:

Can I claim VAT via return on the inputs from Israel? Invoice is in order with all breakdowns of tax, vat number and amounts breakdown.

Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.

Unfortunately you cannot. The Israeli VAT merely becomes part of your Cost of Sales and cannot be reclaimed as input tax.

I am so sorry to have to rain on your parade.

Hi Keith,
thank you, ***** ***** opposite, but I am not tax expert.

Had Israel been in the EU then my answer would have been different, but, unfortunately, it is not.

Please be so kind as to rate me before you leave the Just Answer site.
