The cash payment by the insurer or takaful operator in respect of an insurance or takaful settlement claim does not represent a supply by the insurer or takaful operator nor does it represent consideration for a supply made by the policyholder/contributor. Hence, indemnity payments or settlements are not subject to GST.

Due to the recent tax code changes, should it now be NS? since it is not a supply by both parties.
