Client Testimonial

“CLC Utility Services Ltd has been working in partnership with Indigo since January 2012 and would highly recommend their CIS contracting service to any construction company that engages subcontractors.”

At the initial stage, we had a high volume of subcontractors to register, but the whole process was handled smoothly with minimum disruption to our office. The on-going support towards the subcontractors is of great assistance and freedom to our Accounts Department and I feel we have established a good working relationship with the Indigo Group.”

Helen Mason, CLC Utility Services Ltd

Are you compliant?

  • Do you use the same subcontractors regularly?
  • Have they been working with you for some time?
  • If questioned, would your subcontractors say they work for you?
  • Could your subcontractors be at risk of being taxed as employees by HMRC?

If you answered YES to any of the above, Indigo Group CIS can help you.

We offer a free CIS compliance check

Indigo CIS Key Benefits


1. HMRC & Employment Status Risk

✔ We protect construction companies from HMRC attempting to tax any subcontractors as employees (e.g do the subcontractors drive your vans, wear your t-shirts or frequently get paid by clients?)

✔ No need for expensive direct legal advice, it is Indigo’s sole responsibility to comply with legislation – (e.g clients would not go to court to defend any claims from a disgruntled ex-subcontractor or by HMRC)

✔ Subcontractors will not gain employee rights regardless of the duration of work – the liability for financial penalties and backdated taxes related to the employment status of those subcontractors rests solely with Indigo

2. Insurance

✔ Insurance cover – Personal Site Accident Insurance and Public & Product Liability Insurance will be in place

✔ Our clients are no longer responsible for checking the appropriate insurances are in place before the subcontractor attends site, meaning they can legally start the date agreed – no site delays

✔ No more checking the validity and expiry of the insurance documentation whilst jobs are in progress – are you aware when each subcontractors insurance expires?

3. Administration

✔ Now only make payment to one UTR number each pay run (ours!)

✔ Indigo pay the CIS tax for all subcontractors (no more penalties for late returns) or the hassle of making the payments

✔ Freeing up your office/payroll staff to concentrate on other accounting tasks (e.g chasing aged debts and other core admin duties). We also send a text to the subcontractors prior to payday informing them of their earnings!

✔ We provide weekly payment certificates and year-end statements to the subcontractors to make completing their self-assessments simple and hassle-free

Let us help you reduce administration and payroll costs, whilst ensuring you are fully covered when it comes to tax and employment law.

It’s why thousands of people a week choose Indigo.
