two-column cash-books

Have only found "subdiario" on "ar" web pages, so I'm unsure about it's exact meaning. However "diario de caja" = cash-book
However, according to the Longman Dic. of Business English:
"cash-book. ACCTS. a part of a set of accounts which is both a book of prime entry in which is recorded all cash received and paid (cash here including cheques and money in the bank) and at the same time a ledger account. Sometimes it may for convenience be divided into two, a cash received book and a cash paid book. A two-column cash-book has columns for cash and bank on both the debit and the credit side. A three-column cash-book has an extra column for discounts"

Given that a web search for cash received/paid book was not convincing (i.e. does not appear to be usual), I plump for the two-column idea.

PS if you don't like the hyphens, leave them out. They don't seem to be used much on the web.

petty cash and bank ledgers

were the terms used in Oxford's Financial English with reference to manual bookkeeping. "Sub-", however, indicates the placement of these ledgers under a larger Cash Flow Control chapter or heading, especially with regards to computerized bookkeeping. I believe the prefix is irrelevant for functional accounting purposes.
