Cash or Non-Cash?

Judyta Przyłuska-Schmitt


The purpose of this article was to present the benefis and risks of cash-out for cashless trading. The article analyses data on non-cash trade in Poland against selected European countries. In the following part, the Swedish model of non-cash payments is described. The summary provides scenarios for possible solutions. The analysis shows that the real reasons for limiting cash turnover can be completely different than the fiht against corruption, the grey zone and fiancial crimes. Nevertheless, there is an important element that can outweigh the benefis of non-cash transactions, namely the convenience in making non-cash transactions.
