There is a need for a web interface to an accounting package.

Think about someone on the road. They can enter in there expenses online.

Back up etc is centralised.

Think about a sales person. They can prepare estimates, take orders etc and have them executed there and then.

Call and Notice accounts 

A call and notice account is an account that operates like a savings account. For a call account, you can get access to the money the same day. For a notice account, there will typically be a longer period of notice, such as seven days, or a month.

Payments in and out of the account are fixed cashflows and are straight forward.

However, the balance on the account should be modelled as a cashflow. It is very much like a generic cash flow in that the day on which it falls changes each day. We have a cashflow with a generic date offset from today with the notice period.
