How to get a DUNS number

Obtaining a DUNS (Data Universal Numbering System) number for free can be a bit challenging - this how everyone will start an article about process obtaining an D-U-N-S. But it's not true!

Why do you need a DUNS number?

Apple uses the D-U-N-S number to make sure your company exists. The numbers are assigned by D&B, to which Apple has entrusted all the duties of verifying legal entities.

Until you receive a D-U-N-S number, you will not be able to continue the procedure for registering an account for a legal entity. It will take from seven to thirty working days to receive the number.
