You must inform HMRC if you are changing your business from self-employment to Limited company. 
As a Director, you are legally responsible for making sure information is sent to Companies House on time. 
This includes: 
the confirmation statement 
the annual accounts 
any changes in your company's officers or their personal details 
a change to your company’s registered office 
allotment of shares 
registration of charges 
any change in your company’s people with significant control 
As a director, you are also responsible for the following: 
Managing the company’s affairs 
Following Company Law and any other regulations 
Tax Affairs 
You can hire a professional to manage some of these things for you, however you are remaining responsible for your company’s records, accounts and performance. 
A company director doesn’t need to complete a Self-Assessment tax return because they are treated as an employee of the company. 
You must not allow other people to control your powers as a director. You can accept advice, but you must use your own independent judgement to make final decisions. 
If the company becomes insolvent, your responsibilities as director will apply towards the creditors, instead of the company. A creditor is anyone owed money by the company.
