VAT of course is only relevant in the EU, but generally, that is what it would be referring to, except in special circumstances where some other taxes might also be applicable.

If it's for the US, then you'd probably need to add a note to the effect that French / European VAT = approx. Sales Tax etc.

  -> Thanks, ACOZ! Sure, it depends on geography, but I guess this is a document from France, so the good old EU version applies --- with suitable explanatory note for readers where appropriate, of course!

agree  gad: HT = hors taxe -> "excluding VAT", or also "net of taxes" or "excluding taxes"
