Thank you Derek for the reply
that was my initial approach, to use one of the address fields, but
it's only for storage, it can not be retrieved for use in the invoice
If there is a way and I missed it, I would really appreciate a pointer
Or maybe it would be better to just add a function
in engine/business-core.scm to just return address fields individually
(in addition to the one that returns the whole Address structure)?
Thanks and regards

The main reason is that the fields aren't simply extensible. However
you could easily re-use one of the existing fields for the VAT ID, like
the 4th row of the address, or perhaps the website field.
