    Hi there,

    Im trying to customize the checkout billing fields by adding a VAT field after company field. Tested the code on a different theme and its working but not on XStoretheme. I cant seem to override the fields. Below is the part of code im trying in child theme functions.php (I know how to handle validation and saving).

    add_action( 'woocommerce_before_order_notes', 'add_vat_checkout_field' );
    function add_vat_checkout_field( $checkout ) { 
       $current_user = wp_get_current_user();
       $saved_vat_no = $current_user->vat_no;
       woocommerce_form_field( 'vat_no', array(        
          'type' => 'text',        
          'label' => 'VAT Number',        
          'placeholder' => '12345678',        
          'required' => true,        
          'default' => $saved_vat_no,        
       ), $checkout->get_value( 'vat_no' ) );
