As a UK Sole Trader that is NOT VAT registered, do I have to charge VAT when selling abroad?

I am looking to sell products using Printiful using Shopify. I am a UK based Sole Trader.

I would like to sell to the following countries:

  • UK
  • USA
  • Canada
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • Possibly rest of the world

The VAT/Tax situation is putting me starting this side project. If this business stays under the VAT threshold, and I sell in any of the countries listed above, will I need to charge them VAT?

I am assuming for the UK customers, I won't have to charge VAT as I am not VAT registered and under the threshold. 

I realise there are tax experts and this topic can get complicated. But I am hoping given there could be a simple answer. 

Thank you.
