Origin: [See Cashier.]
In English vernacular cash refers to money in the physical form of currency, such as banknotes and coins. In bookkeeping and finance, cash refers to current assets comprising currency or currency equivalents that can be accessed immediately or near-immediately. Cash is seen either as a reserve for payments, in case of a structural or incidental negative cash flow or as a way to avoid a downturn on financial markets.
