    The term is well understood.
    If a [erson is asked by a tradie if you want a 'cashie' they well understand the implication - under the counter payment with no tax paid.

    To which I say that most people think there is something either illegal, or at best highly suspicious, about paying your lawnmower contractor, or any other home services in cash. And it is not.
    And it's perfectly reasonable for said lawnmower man to offer a cash discount to avoid sending an account, waiting, risking a bad debt, etc.
    But I acknowledge what 'cash' implies to some people (not everyone is an honest willing taxpayer - like me). So I still say the term is best avoided.

    The term is 'cashie', not 'cash'. It's shorthand, long since well established in the vernacular. Language is like that.

    Paying cash is not illegal - agreed.
    The term 'cashie' does not mean just to pay cash and you know that, everyone else knows that also.

    I'm obviously naive in such matters, having spent a lifetime moving only in circles of the upright and honest.
