In September 2014, COLORADO became a «categorized» taxpayer. This makes it only the ninth company in any sector in Morocco to be granted this status so far, and the only company in the paint sector.

«Categorization» status was granted following an external audit and far-reaching scrutiny of the company’s fiscal, economic and social situation. It should be noted that over and above the tax advantages which «categorization» bestows, for COLORADO, which is a listed company on the Casablanca Stock Exchange, this is «an additional distinction and recognition of the company’s transparency, regulatory compliance and economic and social health».
