VAT charging for non UK companies

    we are a Romanian company with a EU VAT ID, and we have been trading with the UK for the last 8 years. We were importing goods from China, then send them to the UK. We were making the customs and VAT payments in Romnia, and sell the goods to the UK vat free.
    Now we want to import goods directly in the UK from China, sea freight. I know that at the moment of import in the UK we must pay the VAT, just like in any other country, but we cannot claim back from HMRC the VAT as we do in Romania.
    My question is:
    If we cannot claim back the VAT from the UK Gov, can we charge VAT to customers? I would say yes, but I could not find any exact specification for this.

    any input welcome
    thank you
