I have a client who sold her Cadbury shares as part of the Kraft takeover. Over many years she has acquired shares in the company as a result of taking scrip dividends. I assume that the effective dividend value establishes the base cost of the shares for CGT purpose. Can anyone tell me where I can find the values of scrip dividends between 1983 and 1997? Also, does the total shareholding form one pool for cost and disposal purposes? Many thanks in advance.
