I see it as a badge of honour not to use cash - whether personal or business expenses.

I have my Amex and Halifax card linked to GooglePay and rarely even carry my wallet now.

Benefit of Halifax clarity is no foreign fees so just pay (a very good) FX on transactions
I used to carry notes, then gave up when I realised I had the same notes in my pockets for months.

I was a 'cash' sort of guy. Then Covid pushed me towards contactless.
What finally did it was the new plastic notes. I bloody hate them.
Now I use my phone for contactless!

Yes with the paper notes you could nicely fold them to credit card size for when you needed them, the plastic notes you simply can't fold them the same, they end up being a semi rolled springy bundle!
The ultimate goal, which covid-19 has accelerated, is the total elimination of cash. Tax man will be happy.
My mate who is a funeral director gets paid in cash all the time, and families think they are doing him a favor, quite the opposite he hates constantly walking to the bank and feels a bit of a target!
He's also been targeted in his funeral home with people making enquiries but after any cash he might have on the premises.
