The Orr Mackintosh Foundation operates a charity share donation scheme for shareholders with small parcels of shares which may be uneconomic to sell. Details of the scheme are available from ShareGift at or by telephone on 0207828 1151. Details can also be obtained from the Shareholder Helpline.

Unclaimed Assets Register
BT, along with many other leading UK companies, subscribes to Experian’s Unclaimed Assets Register (UAR), a register of individuals owed unclaimed financial assets such as shareholdings and dividends. UAR provides members of the public with a search device to trace lost assets. UAR donates a proportion of its income to charity. For further information visit or telephone 0870 241 1713.

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.
