Currently, you can add credit line items for products, which you could use for keg deposit returns.
We will continue to update these invoice fields for things such as delivery fees and other charges.
Adding the deposit to the keg cost is an operational decision.
The downside of including the deposit in the keg cost is you are increasing your value on hand (thus increasing your Cost of Goods Sold and your beverage cost). Some customers (including myself when I was a customer years ago) prefer to not include the deposits in your keg cost, as they want their beverage cost to only be concerned with the cost of the liquid inside the keg. Deposits are more of an operational cost (such as fuel surcharges or delivery fees) and not really a part of your beverage program (according to the opinion of some).
The downside of excluding the deposits in your keg cost is your invoice totals in Partender won't match the totals on the carbon copy. You can circumnavigate this issue by including the carbon copy total IN the Partender invoice name (Ex: Invoice ID 123456 $600.00 from Ben E Keith).
So, it's up to you! Feel free to call or email us if you'd like further explanation or assistance.

This is one of our biggest feature requests. Great news! We are currently planning out our first version of a csv report integration for sales numbers.
However, it will require customers to ensure that their POS is set up correctly with all proper recipes. In order to prepare for POS integration, please make sure your recipes are built into your POS and that your staff is trained on all options and modifiers.
We look forward to sharing updates on future integration releases!
Hey Ruley - Thanks for the suggestion! That's actually on our Product Roadmap. We are closer to integrating with accounting softwares than we are with POS systems, but both are in the works. (Most bars don't have their recipes built and maintained into their POS systems, so direct integration isn't as helpful as most think. But we're still working on it!) Stay tuned =)
