To calculate the base cost of the shares that you sold,  you will have to deduct the profit / loss from the proceeds and then enter this amount in the base cost field on your return.

2. This is the proceeds i.e  the value that your shares were sold for. This amount needs to be entered as proceeds in the  capital gains section of your tax return.
