The first step of the invoice OCR is providing a picture or a PDF file of an invoice to our API. Usually this is done from a mobile app, email, FTP or web application.
The document can be sent both cropped (without background) and uncropped (which means with background). If the invoice is sent uncropped, our API automatically crops the document. There’s also a possibility to use the klippa invoice scanning SDK in mobile apps.
Step 2: image to text (OCR)
When the PDR or picture is sent, it is automatically converted to a TXT file. All text from the invoice is extracted, but not yet processed and structured.
Step 3: getting JSON output from the API
Finally, the parser takes the TXT which was gained from the invoice and converts it into structured data, while using machine learning and AI. From this point on, it’s easy to process the invoice in your database.

Klippa can extract data from all kinds of invoices. We can extract debit invoices, commercial invoices, expense reports, et cetera.
Yes, Klippa supports line item extraction from invoices. We have a special machine learning algorithm for line item extraction. For every line, the quantity, description, price per unit, total price and VAT values are extracted. Optionally SKUs, weight and size can also be extracted.
After the line item extraction Klippa performs line item classification. Using an additional algorithm we classify over 20 categories for each line. For example ‘Food’, ‘Electronics’, ‘Alcoholic’ and many other options. Based on these categories the VAT deductibility can be determined, loyalty points can be distributed and general ledger accounts can be suggested. This is a perfect solution for accounts payable automation.
