Cash Charge

A one-off expense that a company pays, especially when it is attempting to improve its efficiency. For example, if a company wishes to find less expensive employees, it may offer retirement plans to its current employees and take the expense as a cash charge. Cash charges are almost never repeated. A cash charge is reported on a balance sheet as an extraordinary item.
