    The rent is only expensed when it used.

    When you pay for rent in advance you are paying for prepaid rent.

    Entry #1
    Prepaid Rent, $3,000 Debit
    Cash, $3,000 Credit

    Adjustment Entry #1 at End of Month
    Rent Expense (Debit 1/3th of $3,000)
    Prepaid Expense (Credit the value above)

    Hope I helped.
