This page defines the fields that Semantik extracts from invoices.

Invoice Fields

Invoice Field


Field is Manual

Invoice Number

Invoice number generated by the vendor.

PO Number

Purchase order number.


The business unit that received products or services from a vendor.


Invoice Date

Date the invoice was created.

Posting Date

Date when funds are removed from an account to pay an invoice.


Due Date

Date that payment is due for in invoice.

Order Date

Date the order was placed.

Shipping Date

Date the order was shipped.

Service Start Date

Start date for service.


Service End Date

End date for service.



When a payment is expected for the invoice amount.


Total amount of invoice items. This number does not include surcharges or deductions.

Shipping and Freight

Charges for shipping, freight, and handling.

Tax Rate

Tax percentage applied to the invoice.

Tax Amount

Amount of tax billed for the invoice.

Total Amount

Total invoice amount with surcharges, not including any deductions.

Amount Due

Amount owed to the vendor after surcharges and deductions.


A custom note about the invoice.


Note on some invoice fields

Amount Due - Most customers should use this field instead of the Total Amount field (a majority of invoices do not make a distinction between Amount Due and Total Amount). This field will reliably capture what needs to be paid. If it is not found on an invoice, the system will extract anything reported as Total Amount into this field.

Total Amount - If you want to track finer accounting details, you may want to use this field. It will capture what you are charged for which you can then compare to what you actually need to pay (Amount Due).

Posting Date - Automatically extracts data from the Invoice Date field. If your posting date is different from the invoice date, you can manually change it. While reviewing an invoice, scroll down to the Posting Date field in the Results column. Click into the field to manually edit it before completing your review.

When an invoice is submitted after your pay period has closed, you may want to fill in a posting date. This will ensure that the invoice flows through to your ERP with additional information you need so that your vendor can be paid on time.

Note on custom vendor fields

Semantik uses a pre-trained AI model for invoice extraction, so custom vendor fields cannot be automatically extracted. Instead, you’ll need to manually enter data into these fields, which Semantik will automatically send to your ERP or other configured destination.

To use the custom vendor fields, enter the data into the Custom cells of your vendor CSV file (Settings > Vendors > Upload). These fields are not required to upload your vendor list.

If you need to enter custom vendor data for an individual invoice without adjusting your vendor settings, you can manually edit the custom fields during Review. Under the Results column, select Vendor, then scroll down to the Custom fields and enter your data.
