OPEN ITEM is a contractual or scheduled commitment that is not yet reflected in Financial Accounting but will lead to actual expenditures in the future, e.g. a purchase order that is not shipped in full will list those unshipped items as open items within the shipping invoice.
PUBLIC ACCOUNTING means the performance of or offering to perform any engagement that will result in the issuance of an attest report that is in accordance with professional standards. "Practice of public accounting" also means the performance of or offering to perform services other than those described above, such as consulting services, personal financial planning services, or the preparation of tax returns or the furnishing of advice on tax matters by a sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company, professional association, corporation, or other business organization, that advertises to the public as a "certified public accountant" or "public accountant."
