Gift of shares to children over 18

A 100% shareholder/director wants to gift his 2 children 15% of the business each by issuing B shares enabling occasional dividends, what is the tax implication?

I assume since the 2 children are connected parties cgt will be chargeable in the market value of the shares if transferred out of the 100%, correct?

What if new B shares were created on top of the ordinary shares, who would be responsible for paying the tax for shares issued under market value?

Finally, with B shares, where should the dividend / voting rights be laid down to satisfy hmrc if challenged?

Thank you
