This chapter discusses the ideas of payment obligation and the meaning of money, which are both central to commercial law since almost all commercial transactions involve an obligation to make a payment in money by one party or another. Its objectives are, first, to introduce the idea of money; second, to consider the legal nature of physical cash; third, to consider what is involved in the obligation of meeting a payment; and finally, to set out the basic nature of a bank account to enable consideration of the electronic payment mechanisms through funds transfers.
