Exemption in respect of periodic payments for personal injuries

The Civil Liability (Amendment) Act 2017 introduced a new section - section 189B - into the Taxes Consolidation Act 1997. 

Section 189B provides for an exemption from the charge to tax in respect of periodic payments made to an individual on foot of a claim for damages in respect of personal injuries.  

A new Tax and Duty Manual, Part 07-01-41, outlines how the exemption applies.
