rent Transactions on wave

KhaledKhaled Member Posts: 3

I rented a shop as barber I gave the landlord four checks to be paid across the year ( Jan, Apr, Jun, Oct). When I record the expense on these months the P&L shows a drop due to the transaction amount. Is these a way to spread the checks over the months. Eg if I pay a $3000 check I want to have it recorded $1000 for Jan, $1000 for Feb, $1000 for Mar.
Can some one expert in accounting help me on how to set this and what Gl accounts I can use.

    You can create an account under assets Other Short Term called Prepaid Rent. Do a journal entry to move the amount of rent not incurred to date there. Every month do a journal to move that months rent to expense.
    So for example if you paid them 12,000 and rent is due on the 1st. You would have 2,000 in rent expense and 10,000 in Prepaid Rent. On March 1st Debit rent expense credit Prepaid rent
