We study the full counting statistics of heterostructures consisting of normal-metal parts connected to a superconducting terminal. Assuming that coherent superconducting correlations are suppressed in the normal metals, we show, using the Keldysh-Nambu Green's function approach, that the system can be mapped onto a purely normal system with twice the number of elements. For a superconducting beamsplitter with several normal terminals we obtain general results for the counting statistics.
