A limited company can indeed be formed without employees. The company will have at least one shareholder but this shareholder does not have to be employed by the company nor other employees have to be hired.
But this doesn‘t mean that there is always a choice. If a person is actually working for the company and this way generates income this person will be assumed to be an employee of the company. It therefore depends on the actual situation. In case of a pure financial holding for example it can be normal that there is no employee, but in case of a commercial company this will be different.
