It refers to the load capacity of the inverter. VA is used instead of watts for technical reasons. To get an idea of the wattage electrical load that can be connected, multiply the va by about 0.6 To know more about this, see the following: http://www.apcmedia.com/salestools/SADE-5TNQYF_R0_EN.pdf

VA Means Volt Amps
The formula is Watts / Power Factor = VA
example we need 550 watt : 550/0.7 = 786 VA
So we can use 800VA Inverter

Some people calculate 0.6 , some 0.7 , some 0.8. It depends on type of inverters

VA (or volt-amps) is also volts times amps, the concept however has been extended to AC power. For DC current . It is load capacity

It refers to the load capacity of the inverter
va stands for power handling capacity of the inverter
600 va means lower capacity inverter as compared to 800 va
