Would this transfer attract the additional 3% stamp duty land tax?

If I transfer a very small share of my buy-to-let property to my child to use up my capital gains tax annual allowance, does this mean that a property bought by the child would attract the 3% stamp duty land tax (SDLT) increase as a second property?

Arthur Weller replies: 
If you look at (page 27, Q&A 7), you can see that when the child afterwards buys their own property they will not have to pay the extra 3% SDLT if the very small share of the buy-to-let that they own is worth less than £40,000.
