Re: Shall I inform my employer that I will be self employed or be a owner of a compan

As others said, check your contract, which should have a clause clarifying the matter. In my case, the contract specifically says that I am forbidden to carry out any and all activities connected to our business (i.e. the same or very similar work than what I do for my employer) on a self employment/independent basis.

I am however allowed to engage in activities on an independent basis that are not related to the field of my employer, and in any case upon written consent by my employer. Furthermore, these activities must not take up more than a certain percentage of the work week (I forget the % now), and in any case must not interfere with my regular job, and include working for a non-profit - I could, with written consent, only if the activity doesn't come close to what I do at my employer.
