      Twitter’s British operation paid £1.24m in tax last year as staff enjoyed a £12.5m shares windfall.
    The US technology company, which is the subject of      rumours of a potential acquisitionby Google, Disney or computing company SalesForce reported a rise in UK revenues of 30.5% to £76m in 2015, well short of the £135.7m that it made in Britain, according to estimates from analysts at eMarketer.   
    This could mean that up to £60m of Twitter’s revenues may have been booked in Ireland, where the parent company of the UK operation is incorporated.   
    Twitter UK made a £3.36m pre-tax profit last year, up from £3.29m in 2014. The £1.24m tax payment was shown in accounts filed at Companies House.   
    Legally diverting revenues can help companies avoid paying higher corporation tax bills in the UK, and Twitter is one of a number of large companies that has been criticised for locating activities in Ireland to take advantage of the country’s      more generous tax regime.   
    A spokesman for Twitter UK said: “We account for sales in the UK and we pay tax in the UK.”   
    The company, which has headquarters in London, employed 163 people last year, up from 126 in 2014, running up a bill for wages, pensions and social insurance of £17.6m.   
    On average, each staff member cost almost £108,000. The pay of the company’s top UK directors is not revealed in the UK accounts. Dara Nasr is the      managing director of Twitter UK.   
    The company set aside £12.5m to cover the cost of shares for employees, down from £14m in 2014.
