Something simple and straightforward would be the ability to store the  
URL of the receipt/invoice against the particular entry, rather than  
the whole invoice itself.

We store all invoices in svn (but invoices could be stored in git, or  
just as files-on-disk or files-on-webserver), and the corresponding  
URL stored.

Functionality could then exist to display the corresponding document,  
or to flag which documents are missing (return 404), etc.
