QB Issue Resolution:

I can share some insights about recording the deposit of your kegs in Quickbooks Desktop.


To record deposits on bottles, you can use a non-inventory part or service item. Here’s how to set it up:


  1. Go to the Lists menu.
  2. Choose Item List.
  3. Right-click anywhere and click New.
  4. From the Type drop-down, choose Service or Non-inventory Part.
  5. Select a liability account as the income account.
  6. Key in all the information then click OK.

When used on the sales receipt or invoice, the Non-inventory part item should add a non-taxable amount to the total. Doing so, the liability account for the bottle deposits should be increased by the amount of the deposit.


When the bottles are returned, open a Credit Memo and select the same Non-inventory part item used above and adding the refund amount. This process will reduce the liability account by the amount of the refund.
