Definition: Capital transfer in cash

ESA 1995

A capital transfer in cash consists of the transfer of cash that the first party has raised by disposing of an asset, or assets (other than inventories), or that the second party is expected, or required, to use for the acquisition of an asset, or assets (other than inventories).  The second party, the recipient, is often obliged to use the cash to acquire an asset, or assets, as a condition on which the transfer is made.
