All of us here at The Trafford Centre are committed to making your experience with us as welcoming as possible. Whether you’re here for shopping, treating or eating, it’s important to us that each and every one of you feels at home. With that in mind we have a few simple house rules that we hope will keep everyone happy.

Here goes…

  • Please always keep an eye on any children in your care.
  • Intimidating behaviour of any kind towards other visitors, our staff or our retailers is not acceptable.
  • If there is a hood attached to your clothing please make sure that it is worn down.
  • Animals are not allowed, unless they’re assistance dogs.
  • We don’t allow shopping trolleys on the malls other than in selected areas.
  • No dropping litter, except in the bins.
  • No leafleting, canvassing, conducting third party interviews or surveys unless we give the thumbs up first.
  • Selling goods without our go-ahead is not allowed anywhere in the mall or associated areas. Nor do we permit busking in the mall and associated areas unless agreed in advance by Centre Management.
  • Climbing or sitting on any balustrade, barrier, fence or railing is also off limits, as we’d hate anything to get broken, especially you.
  • No ball games even if you are Lionel Messi.
  • Bikes, roller-blades, micro-scooters, skateboards and Heelys® or any similar product is a no-no.
  • No swearing, shouting or use of other unpleasant language. As your mum might say, “It’s not nice and it’s not clever” and she’d be right.
  • No inappropriate use of customer lifts and escalators.
  • To make sure our guests are not always tripping over film crews, we do not allow commercial filming or photography unless it’s agreed by Centre Management first. Just pop by and have a chat to sort it out. If you’re taking shots of yourself, friends or family then snap away!
  • Drones are not allowed. You might be able to buy a UAV, or drone, at The Trafford Centre, but please wait until you get home before you try and use it! We are committed to keeping people safe and out of harm’s way when they visit us, as well as protecting the security and privacy of our staff and members of the public, so we don’t allow the use of drones anywhere without express permission. That includes inside the centre, within our retail partners’ stores, in the car parks and on adjacent land, or anywhere else within the centre’s periphery.
  • No throwing any object within the Centre.
  • Please no running on the malls.
  • Shirts/tops and footwear must be worn at all times, except in the changing rooms of course.
  • Crash helmets should be removed upon entering the Centre even if you’re having a really bad hair day.

And finally…

  • There is a strict no smoking policy and alcohol is only to be consumed in a licensed premise.
  • Electronic cigarettes are also not permitted.
  • Any act of vandalism towards property belonging to us, or our retailers, will be dealt with accordingly and the local police informed.
  • This list doesn’t cover everything and we have the right to deny anyone entry whose actions we feel are inappropriate.
  • Anyone who ignores these rules or commits a crime will be denied entry for as long as Centre Management see fit.
  • But to the ninety-nine point nine percent of you who are wonderful, lovely people and who wouldn’t dream of being the slightest bit anti-social, thank you for taking the time and trouble to read this.

Enjoy your visit!

Financial year ended 31 December 2024

Tax Strategy – a responsible approach to tax

The Group Tax Strategy is published in accordance with Paragraphs 19(2) and 22(2), Schedule 19 Finance Act 2016.

This Tax Strategy relates to the year ended 31 December 2024 and will apply until superseded.

The policy sets out the overarching principles towards tax and the Group’s responsibilities for their implementation.

Governance and strategy

The Board of Directors has overall responsibility for governance of the Group’s business including tax strategy and risk. One of the Directors is also the Group’s Senior Accounting Officer (“SAO”). The Group is committed to ensuring that we pay the right amount of tax when it falls due and has a low tolerance to tax risk. We aim to maintain a good corporate reputation with all stakeholders including tax authorities.


NW Baroque Limited is the Jersey incorporated (although resident in the UK for taxation purposes) parent company of Trafford Centre Group (UK) Limited, its three UK incorporated subsidiary companies and its one Cayman Islands (although resident in the UK for taxation purposes) subsidiary company (the ‘Group’).

The principal activity of the Group is that of investing in and rental of the Trafford Centre, Manchester, in the UK. The Trafford Centre remains a premier regional shopping and leisure destination with a mix of major international and national retailers along with diverse food, beverage and leisure offerings.

The Group is supported in its activities by its Asset Manager, Pradera Lateral Limited, and its Administrator, Crestbridge UK Limited.

The Group manages its assets to deliver sustainable, progressive earnings and long-term capital value for its shareholders. Tax is a consequence of the activities the Group undertakes.

NW Baroque Limited is a UK Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) and is exempt from corporation tax on rental income and gains from UK investment properties. The aim of the REIT regime is to closely align the tax treatment of shareholders in a REIT to the equivalent of a direct property investment. This is done through removing one of the double layers of taxation (historically shareholders have been taxed once at the company level and again on the dividend received). In the UK, this is achieved through exempting the REIT from corporate tax on rental income and gains, with a requirement for the REIT to distribute 90% of annual rental profits as a Property Income Distribution (PID). The PID is taxed as rental income in the hands of shareholders.

The Group is also subject to a number of taxes in the same way as non-REIT companies including: VAT, stamp duty land tax/stamp duty, PAYE, employer’s national insurance, business rates, insurance premium tax, and various environmental taxes.

We are committed to good corporate governance and best practice. Reporting and paying the correct amount of tax forms an important part of this commitment and, accordingly, the Group takes its obligations as a taxpayer very seriously and has a very low appetite for tax risk.

Tax governance and tax risk management

Overall responsibility for ensuring that tax risk is managed effectively across the Group lies with the Board. The Audit Committee reviews the effectiveness of the risk management process on behalf of the Board. The day to day preparation of information, returns and payment of taxes are dealt with by senior members of the finance teams of the Asset Manager and Administrator who are supported by third-party advisers as required. The senior finance team members are qualified professionals with many years of relevant experience, supported by regular training. This tax knowledge is augmented by third-party advice where relevant. We take care to ensure that our tax affairs are reported accurately. If we were to identify an error in a tax return, we would seek to voluntarily disclose it, quantifying the effect of the error and paying any additional tax, interest and penalties that may become due as a result. The Group’s robust review processes support the SAO in certifying to HMRC that we have appropriate tax accounting arrangements.

Attitude to tax planning

The Group is committed to retaining its REIT status and maintaining a good reputation with HMRC. We have a low tolerance towards tax risk and advice is sought from reputable third-party advisers to ensure compliance with the relevant legislation. The business only undertakes transactions where there is a bona fide commercial purpose and do not undertake tax planning unconnected to such commercial transactions. The Group is structured in a tax efficient manner as intended by legislation, for example the REIT legislation, capital allowances and other government incentive schemes. Where there is a choice on how to proceed with a transaction, we will consider the tax implications, alongside other commercial requirements, to ensure we remain competitive. When considering tax risk, the Board considers the views of our stakeholders (investors and commercial partners) as well as HMRC.

Our relationship with HMRC

The Group has an open and transparent relationship with HMRC in all our dealings with them. The Group’s objective is to operate in a low risk manner and aggressive tax planning is not part of our strategy. Clarification or formal clearances may be sought from HMRC where tax treatment is uncertain. We consider this collaborative approach with HMRC to be a fundamental part of our governance of tax risk.
