Answer

Firstly, you should determine when is the date on which your Zakaat year ends. If on this date you have the cash on hand, it would be added to all other Zakaatable assets and Zakaat will be paid thereon. This applies even though you may have the intention to give this as a loan in the future.

If by this date you have given this cash as a loan to anyone, then Zakaat is not immediately payable on this amount. Once the loan is repaid to you, Zakaat then becomes payable for all the past years when the cash was given as a loan. As a precaution, it would be better to pay Zakaat on this amount from now, so that in future, when the loan is repaid, it is not a burden to pay for all the past years.
