You usually need to have the agreement of your company's directors and shareholders to close a limited company.
The way you close the company depends on whether it can pay its bills or not. If you had money owing to anyone during your business these are the people that need to be notified.
You need make a tax return if your company, and inform HMRC of the dissolution of the company.
You also need to close the business account and use the Sole trader one indecently from the business account.
I hope that answers your questions.

Hello , you are most welcome , you can pay your corporation tax before striking off the company.
At the start of your company being wound up, your current Corporation Tax accounting period comes to an end and a new accounting period begins. From that point on, your company’s accounting periods run for periods of 12 months until the winding up is complete.
Your company must continue to file a Company Tax Return and pay Corporation Tax on taxable profits arising from:
trading income and other income such as investment income
the sale of other goods or assets (chargeable gains) for example, to pay off creditors
Your company will pay any Corporation Tax due during the winding-up period at the same rates as before the winding up period started.
Hope that is clear now?
