I know what you mean because in the form I filled it actually said that the services were performed in that other country - because it took place of supply into the account. But the work was performed in UK. So I had the same issue.
I would just fill it in for business (putting limited company name and signing it as a director on behalf of the limited company) and submit it to HMRC in this way, get HMRC to give you certificate of fiscal residence and stamp the form and submit this to Greek authorities. It is likely to be fine.

If the double taxation is about company profits, then as company.
If it is about your own profit (e.g. dividends) then it is personal income, I have not been involved with this.
But I have sucessfully obtained "Certificate of Fiscal Residence" from HMRC for the limited company, even though the form refered to "person".
So it depends on what you were asked for - what kind of income has double taxation problem.

I had the similar issue with another EU country and I had a similar concern. After investigating and talking to HMRC, I found out the following:
Most likely you need to apply for "Certificate of Residence" for your Limited company (not for yourself).
There is a probably a specific form you need to fill that Greek tax authorities ask you to.
If you look at the article II (e) of the double taxation agreement with Greece:
(e) The term "person" includes any body of persons, corporate or not corporate
Therefore in the form, instead of your own name, you put your Ltd company name.
The form will most likely ask you about the type of income in respect of which your company wishes to make a claim, and I think you need to declare it as a "Business profit".

You only need to fill in ECSL for customers with VAT number
Non-business customers = consumers. How this is treated depends on what you are selling and how (goods, services, digital).
