Through a prior company I had stock grants in a London based company and they used an outside service to maintain the stock. Unfortunately that company did not adhere to US tax laws in maintaining the cost basis for when I went to sell so I'm going to have to calculate it myself. Since the initial grant was on the London exchange I wasn't sure if I needed to use the GBP to US$ exchange rate from the date of the grant to calculate my cost basis or if I use the exchange rate from the date of the sale. If any one has any idea I'd appreciate it.
