Transferring a Freehold commercial building to a LTD company

I own a freehold petrol station and MOT garage, the long term tenant is now gone and its vacant, I have plans to redevelop it however the planning I have achieved so far is not particularly profitable. I am keen to transfer it to a LTD company.accountant

My questions are as follows:

1. If I transfer it to the LTD company at say 300k is stamp duty payable and at what rate.

2. I originally paid 500k for it can the 200k loss be used to offset capital gains on the sales of another property not in the LTD company.

3. Do I have to physically transfer 300k to my accountant to buy the property in the LTD company name then he transfers the 300k back to me?
