As CPAScott more thoroughly explained,
You add the "buy" commission to the cost of the shares you purchase.
You subtract the "sell" commission from the gross proceeds of the shares you sell.
The difference between these two numbers is your capital gain (or loss). Your trading costs are part of the calculation.
