بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
If you have that money on your zakat anniversary (i.e. the day on which you have to pay zakat every year), then it will be compulsory to pay zakat on it. If you spend the money before your zakat anniversary, you will not have to pay zakat on it.
And Allah Ta'ala knows best
