Check-out this website
Go to Northcote Data website they will give you, free of charge, any dividend rate for any company in the last few years. This is a really excellent site. For future reference, Trustnet is another useful site that will give you the dividends/interest paid on most Unit Trusts.

Be careful with the BAA holding - time is running out...
BAA was taken over by Airport Development and Investment Ltd on 26 June 2006. Shareholders received either cash or unsecured loan notes. If your client took the loan notes then you need to discuss with them how these are being redeemed as the last redemption date is June 2009. They can only now be redeemed before that in December 08 but you will be nearing the cut off deadline for requesting some notes to be redeemed. Depending on the gains involved your client may wish to split the gain over 08/09 and 09/10 in order to take advantage of both annual exemptions.

I find going to a particular companies website to be the easiest and cheapest way of obtaining historical dividend data.

In BT's case you can get that information from their website. The other two aren't publicly traded I don't think so you may struggle.

Change jobs
I realise that this is not a good time to be thinking about it, but if your employer won't furnish you with the tools to do your job, you should move on.

Does he give you a desk and stationery?
