    Rent is a fixed overhead item. Has nothing to do with assets (what you own) or liabilities (what you owe) or the difference between the two (Net Worth).

    In GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Practices) a payment for rent would normally DEBIT (decrease) a cash or other bank account and CREDIT (increase) a G&A Expense (General and Administrative expense) account. Hope this helps
