Where can I find information about Capital Gains Tax?

Information on Capital Gains Tax is available on the HM Revenue & Customs website www.gov.uk/capital-gains-tax. When shares are disposed of a capital gain may result if the disposal proceeds exceed the sum of the base cost of the shares sold and any other allowable deductions such as share dealing costs.

The calculations required to compute capital gains may be complex and depend on personal circumstances. Shareholders are advised to consult their personal financial advisor for further information regarding a possible tax liability in respect of their shareholdings.

What arrangements are there for people with disabilities?

Copies of documents issued by the Company are available from the Company Secretary. If needed, copies can be made available in a variety of formats, either Braille or on audio tape or larger type as appropriate.

You can contact our Registrars, Equiniti, who have installed textphones to allow speech and hearing impaired people who have their own textphone to contact them directly by ringing 0870 600 3950 without the need for an intermediate operator. Specially trained operators are available during normal business hours to answer queries via this service.

Alternatively, if you prefer to go through a ‘typetalk’ operator (provided by the Royal National Institute for the Deaf), you should dial 18001 followed by the number you wish to dial.

For shareholders attending the Annual General Meeting of the Company an induction loop is available for hearing aid wearers.

How do nominees get copies of shareholder documents?
