Are you sure that the nursing bit isn't a cover for her being a highly compensated assassin?

The UK taxes capital gains, but they have an annual exemption amount for cap gains of 8800 GBP (this year) so many people don't have to pay cap gains tax b/c of that.

I do agree their system seems eaiser for the wage earner. There isn't a W-4 type form. The government tells the company how much to withhold and it's almost always spot on. However, if you're self-employed, have two jobs, investment income, or due a refund you still have to self-assess (file a tax form).
