Overview of DIR-3 KYC Filing

A DUNS Number is a nine-digit identifier provided by Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) and is recognized internationally. It serves as a unique marker for a business, allowing entities around the world to verify and assess the credibility and financial health of a business. This number is crucial for businesses that intend to bid on government contracts, establish credit lines with vendors, or participate in international markets.

In India, acquiring a DUNS Number is seen as a step towards establishing a business’s legitimacy and trustworthiness. It is essential for businesses looking to expand beyond local markets and engage in global trade. The process to obtain a DUNS Number is free and involves submitting company information to D&B, who then verify the details and issue the number, usually within 30 days. This number not only helps in enhancing a business’s credibility but also aids in smoother financial and legal transactions both domestically and internationally.
