D-U-N-S® Number

The Dun & Bradstreet D‑U‑N‑S® Number is a unique nine-digit identifier for businesses. This number is assigned once our patented identity resolution process identifies a company as being unique from any other.

About the D‑U‑N‑S® Number

The D‑U‑N‑S® Number is used around the world to identify and access information on businesses. 

A D‑U‑N‑S® Number identifies a company’s Dun & Bradstreet business credit file, which may include firmographic data (company name, address, phone number, etc), corporate family relationships (headquarters, branches, subsidiaries, etc), scores and ratings that assess different financial health indicators.

The business credit file associated with your business’s D‑U‑N‑S® Number can help potential partners and lenders learn about your business and make informed decisions about whether or not to work with you as a client, supplier or partner.

Even after you’ve signed a contract or accepted a loan, your D‑U‑N‑S® Number can be used to help get a clear view of your business, which can help you negotiate for improved terms and conditions or a favourable line of credit.

Equally, you can use the D‑U‑N‑S® Number to access the same information about any company with which you might wish to work. Nine numbers for you to go both ways.

DUNS number 1

Establish credibility with lenders, and expedite applications for loans and contracts

Many financial institutions and partnering vendors will look at a company’s business credit report or monitor a company’s Live Business Identity to consider whether to extend credit or grant a loan and what terms to offer. The information in the report includes vital D&B® scores and ratings that will speed up decision-making.

DUNS number 2

Do business with governments and companies outside your domestic market

Companies all over the world and many government institutions perform risk assessments of their potential partners or suppliers as part of the vetting process and may require a D‑U‑N‑S® Number when submitting a bid. The organisation or company requesting the D‑U‑N‑S® Number can use it to help verify a company’s legitimacy or to access the D&B scores and ratings in the bidder’s business credit report. 

Ensure other businesses have a complete and accurate impression of your business

Your D‑U‑N‑S® Number can be used to request your business credit report, which contains your company’s D&B® scores and ratings; as well as suits, liens, or judgments; your company’s payment history; and other information that can be used to help gauge your company’s credit-worthiness as a customer, supplier, or partner.
