CAPITAL GAINS TAX
The rights issue in June 2001 adjusted the value of your BT shares for capital gains tax (CGT) purposes. An explanatory leaflet is available from the Shareholder Helpline.
The demerger of O2 in November 2001 adjusted the value of your BT shares for CGT purposes. For CGT calculations, the base cost of the BT Group shares is calculated by multiplying the acquisition cost of the BT shareholding by 77.544%. This is in accordance with the confirmed opening prices for BT Group shares following the demerger.
