Surely one reason is the black economy, which accounts for about 8% of the UK economy and more in Italy & Greece. It is not unusual in the UK for a builder to offer to undertake a job for cash. If you want to pay by any other method, then he will charge you VAT at 20%. There are no financial objectives to pay any other way than cash.
