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 and O2
shares is calculated by multiplying the acquisition cost of the
BT shareholding by 77.544% for the BT Group shares, and 22.456%
for the O2 shares. This is in accordance with the confirmed opening
prices for BT Group and O2 shares following the demerger.
