    How do you calculate prepaid rent expenses?

    The procedure of calculating the prepaid rent expenses depends on the amount of a company’s monthly rent.Firstly, you have to divide the total amount of prepaid rent by a certain number of months.For instance, if a company that prepaid $2400 for a year then divides $2400 by 12 because we know there are 12 months in a year.The result will show the amount of rent the company has to pay each month.Hence, the company has to pay $200 per month for rent.

    How do you verify rental applicants' identities for tenant screening?
