Car lease deposit treatment

A question regards the treatment of car lease deposit


We pay a deposit of say£1500 for a new leased car over a term of 3 years.  And then onging  monthly rental of £400  for the lease again ongoing for three years. 


Am I correct that the deposit should be treated as a pre payment and the cost spread over the three years,  or as our new accountant said it should be expensed immediately as a sunk cost?


If anyone can help i would greatly appreciate it


Many thanks
