Oh, to live in such a black and white world ! How can you automatically assume that the accountant is lazy - it could be that he was providing objective, best value advise? Have you complainers considered that perhaps oldvic's accountant was suggesting it would be cheaper for oldvic or his broker to provide the CGT information rather than the accountant charging him to work it out ? Perhaps you think that the accountant should do this work for free or do you think that the accountant should just do the work and charge regardless? It might be that oldvic was complaining about the accountants fee and the accountant suggested that his client might want to source or do part of it himself to reduce the cost? I know that it's quite easy to get this information if you have an HL a/c and buy sell entire holdings at once. Otherwise yes, use a spreadsheet or I have seen websites somewhere that will do the calculations where you buy /sell in parts. ps. I'm not an accountant, I do have one though and I provide as much of the necessary information to him as possible to keep costs lower.

Well encarter, for “safe” sectors, or about as safe as you can get at the moment, the obvious one is food retail, particularly the big ones but their SPs have held up well so they can’t be considered bargains and you may well prefer to keep in cash for better buys. One share that does look good is PZC who make hand gels and soap and although their share price is holding well it’s still in relative bargain territory when results come out. A few notable fund managers have also taken positions at higher prices than its at currently too. Obviously dyor as I know you will but it could be a nice one to pick up? Strangely enough I think this is way oversold too and could be worth adding to if it gets another leg down with everything else. Copper miners are also very sold off currently, for obvious reasons but I suspect once things pick up and the electric market sparks up again they should quickly bounce back. CAML for one looks a bargain right now and ANTO too.

FFS, don't leave it to them. My accountant got it wrong 5 years out of 7. Do the calcs yourself, I used to use a free on-line program, and my calcs were always right - unlike the 'expert'.

My thoughts too. Isn't that their job?

Think a change of accountant is needed. Sounds like he is either lazy or lacking in basic skills.

Now that the buy back is paused they have plenty of cash so divi should be save. They might even give a bonus divi once the dust settles. DLG seem save and should do well. Any other companies or sectors that should do well also? Who will win from this mess?

Reinforces the idea that portfolios should be spread around sectors - some winners some losers but no one could have predicted the events of the past few months.

Exactly encarter, DLG should be much less affected than many with the bulk of their policies being home and motor. People will still pay policies but more people at home = less burglaries and less driving means less motor claims. That’s probably why their share price has held up better than most other stocks and seems a good reason to add at these levels.

I didn't say DLG sold life insurance. As for car insurance it's essential journeys only so obviously will be less cars on the road, less accidents and less claims.

Travel companies, airlines and credit card companies would pick up the majority of risk on holiday cancellation as there is legislation in place to protect consumers. Insurance is last resort

Isn't the big risk to DLG the return they make on their investments which must surely take a big hit this year. Then again if we remain on lockdown for the rest of the year there will be nothing to pay out!!

DLG doesn't sell any life insurance or annuities though. Travel is really the big hit they'll take from covid. Don't foresee significant amounts of people giving up driving completely to the extent it depletes their motor insurance book, and in fact people probably value a private car more now given fears over public transport. Home insurance is also pretty much unaffected.

And life insurance.

No. They could decide to cut it to preserve more cash in these uncertain times but it's unlikely. My feeling is that in 18 months time this situation would have been sorted and more people than ever will be taking out insurance especially holiday cover.

Does the halting of the buy back programme have an effect on the Final dividend? Thanks
