D-U-N-S Numbers

Accurately gauge creditworthiness with Dun & Bradstreet’s unique, location-specific business identifier.

Dun & Bradstreet’s D-U-N-S Number is a unique nine-digit identification sequence which provides unique identifiers of single business entities, while linking corporate family structures together.

The D-U-N-S Numbering system is a widely recognised standard for identifying businesses among thousands of companies, marketplaces and regulatory entities. Companies worldwide use the D-U-N-S Number to link information about suppliers, customers and trading partners, providing a more complete picture of the risk and opportunity in their business relationships.

D-U-N-S Numbers can help your business:

  • consolidate, cleanse and eliminate duplicate records within your databases
  • streamline the information held in disparate databases and improve customer service by linking related customer accounts to support a “one customer” view
  • identify risk exposure and highlight cross-selling opportunities within the same corporate family group
  • integrate your internal systems by linking payables/receivables and tracking business documentation to the business entity and location level
  • link interrelated suppliers to enable you to leverage your corporate buying power
  • integrate additional demographic information from Dun & Bradstreet to provide a profile of your customers, suppliers and prospects.
