BT Group EasyShare Services

Form A

This form is needed to transfer shares to another account within EasyShare (including using this form to request the opening of an EasyShare account for a family member).

To transfer shares as a gift to another individual, insert "NIL" in the top left box.

If the new owner is paying for the shares, Stamp Duty is payable. This is normally paid by the new owner and a cheque, as set out in the notes, should be sent with the form.

Form B

You need this form to request a transfer out of EasyShare and for the share certificate to be produced in a name other than your own. See the notes above and on the reverse of the form in respect of Stamp Duty.

If you wish to take your shares out of EasyShare and have a share certificate produced in a name other than your own, that will be free of charge for the first 90 days after your shares are transferred into EasyShare. After that period, there will be a charge for transferring your shares out of EasyShare – these are set out in the EasyShare terms and conditions, so a cheque for £10.00, payable to Equiniti Financial Services Limited, should be sent with the form. 

Form C

This is the form you need to complete if you want a share certificate to be produced in your own name.

If you wish to take your shares out of EasyShare and have a share certificate sent to you, that will be free of charge for the first 90 days after your shares are transferred into EasyShare. After that period, there will be a charge for transferring your shares out of EasyShare – these are set out in the EasyShare terms and conditions, so a cheque for £10.00, payable to Equiniti Financial Services Limited, should be sent with the form.

This does not apply if you sell shares via the share-dealing service providers, which BT has made arrangements with.

Form D

This form is needed if you wish to transfer into EasyShare the BT Group shares for which you already hold certificates. You will need to enclose all the relevant certificates with the form and you may prefer to use Recorded Delivery or Registered Post. You will receive an opening statement from Equiniti Financial Services Limited once the transfer into Easyshare has been completed.

Form E

This form should be used to transfer shares from EasyShare into another CREST participant account (e.g. a stockbroker or other nominee account), where the beneficial ownership of the shares does not change. You will need the CREST participant account ID and member account number - for further details contact your broker, fund manager or corporate registrar as appropriate. Transfers to another CREST participant account, are free of charge for the first 90 days after your shares are transferred into EasyShare. After that period, there will be a charge for transferring your shares out of EasyShare – these are set out in the EasyShare terms and conditions so a cheque for £10.00, payable to Equiniti Financial Services Limited, should be sent with the form.
