Does a CEO of a company needs to employ themselves within the company?

The director and owner of a newly established company does not need to employ themselves within the company, if he or she is already a full-time employee (40 hours/week) at another company. If they are employed at another company on a full time base, the employer of the company where they are working is paying social contributions for them.

On the other hand some directors and shareholders of a company work for another company only part time (20 hours/week). In rhis case they need to make sure to register themselves for insurance in the newly established company for the rest of 20 hours/week. This is what is left for the full insurance. For this 20 hours/week of insurance they will need to pay their social contributions on their own.
