   In the MId-Level Ontology (MILO) that extends SUMO, there is the concept 
of a FinancialText which ultimately is a subclass of the SUMO term Text 
<http://ontology.teknowledge.com:8080/rsigma/SKB.jsp?req=SC&name=Text&skb=SUMO>.    (01)

My intial assessment is that an Invoice should be a FinancialText.  You can 
get the MILO at <http://ontology.teknowledge.com>    (02)
