There is a registration called DUNS Registration which is recognized at international level. A system known as the Data Universal Number System (DUNS) is utilized to maintain a precise and thorough identifying system for organizations that transact business with the US federal government.

The Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number is a special nine-digit identification number provided by Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) to organizations looking to conduct business with the federal government. A DUNS number can be site-specific, meaning each distinct physical location of an organization (such as branch offices) may be given its own DUNS number, but for small organizations, one DUNS number is typically sufficient. Obtaining a DUNS number is free of charge, and requests can be made over the phone or online.

A DUNS number is required for the filing of any application for a Shuttered Venue Operators Grant (SVOG) by any organization wishing to conduct business with the federal government.

The following information is required:

  • Legal name of your entity
  • Headquarters name and address for your organization
  • Doing business as (DBA) or other name by which your organization is known or recognized
  • Physical address, including city, state and zip code
  • Mailing address (if separate from headquarters and/or physical address)
  • Telephone number
  • Contact name and title
  • Number of employees who work at the physical location you are seeking a number for.

There are various benefits of having DUNS registration by any organizations. Lenders or vendors can look up and assess your company’s D&B rating using your DUNS number. This rating serves as your company’s equivalent of a credit score.

There are many benefits of having a D-U-N-S number assigned to your business:

  • Your business entity can be identified by corporations and other organizations worldwide. The D-U-N-S database system is standardized internationally.
  • By keeping your Dun & Bradstreet PAYDEX Score (scores credit worthiness from 0-100) high you ensure banks and vendors more quickly do business with you.
  • You can establish, identify, and enhance the credit score for your business. Once you have a D-U-N-S number, you can look up your company’s credit rating and use the information to make decisions that advance your business.
  • Your business will be able to contract with business entities that require partners to have a D-U-N-S. Having a D-U-N-S number is required to do business with the US government and many other organizations.
  • Your D-U-N-S number is often necessary for obtaining grants and loans for your business. Most banks have this requirement, and it applies to government grants as well.
