John,
I gave you incorrect financial numbers. Turns out the $29.00 package is now $49.00 and the full package is $179.00.
Their website address is www.dnb.com

Steve, how are you? Listen I called Dun & Bradstreet to register my company with them. I was told I needed to get five trade names. I assume as referrals. Did you have to do this. What is the big deal to get my company registered? What exactly did you have to do? Thanks in advance.

John,
I did not register with Dun and Bradstreet. I may be registered with them but if I am they obtained my name from the division of assesments and taxation here in Maryland.
If I were asked for 5 trade references I would give contractors, newspapers that I advertise in, carpeting guy, realtors, bank, attorney, etc…

Hope this helps.

Don’t ask for the service where you have to pay money. If you do that they will want 5 creditors names. Instead use the free service. Tell them you just want a DUNS number and not a rating.

John,
We list all of our companies w/ Dun and Bradstreet. They are the “Business” credit agency similar to equifax, trw, experian for personal credit.
At first we list and get a Duns Number for free, after 6mos trading w/ companies under the corporate name we pay the $29.00 and have them give us a "rating"
