The Question is not clear hence i have given clarification in the following ways :
If the books of account closed on 31 Dec 16 and if the rent pertained to the month of same financial year, ie Jan 16 to Mar 16 and the payment will be made during Mar 17 :
Rent A/C
To Out Standing rent A/C
[ Being the expenses is pertained to Current Financial Year but it has been paid in the next financial Year]
2) At the time of Payment during Mar 17
Out Standing Rent A/C
To Party A/C
Party A/C
To Bank A/C
Next answer
If the Books of accounts closed during 31Mar17 and rent pertained to the months of Jan 17 to Mar 17 and the entry made during Dec 16
Rent A/C
To Party A/C
( At the time receiving bills during Dec 16)
