Do You Collect Cash With Your Business?

As the UK government announces plans to phase out 1p and 2p coins I thought it would be interesting to see who actually collects coins and notes these days for payment of goods/services? All of my payments/receipt of funds are made online so I only ever see the colour of the cash when I draw it out of the bank (very rarely).

As I work online all of my payments are electronic which suits me just fine and makes it much easier when I submit my company accounts at the end of the year. I cant ever see myself being in a situation when I would expect to take any cash payments. Also, my bank charges me for depositing cash in my company account!

Cash is dead - too costly to handle and bank, electronic payments all the way for me.

Many people believe that government's are slowly winding down the use of cash - take the coronavirus issue, not being allowed to use cash in the majority of shops. Sensible, but it just shows how easy it is to stop everyone using cash?

I cant ever see a time when cash would be banned but I can see governments and businesses making it more cost worthy to pay by card, bank transfer, etc.
