A Dun & Bradstreet number is to a company or business what a Social Security number is to people. When your company applies for a business loan or credit, this number is used to determine the creditworthiness of your business. Dun & Bradstreet keeps a record of your business's credit profile filed under your D-U-N-S number. To obtain a D-U-N-S number for your business, visit the D&B website to apply. When you apply and are approved, you can use a few basic procedures to confirm your D-U-N-S number.
