How the Dun and Bradstreet Report Works

Dun & Bradstreet uses data taken from public records as well as information reported directly from vendors and collection agencies. This report shows the overall health and status of a business. D&B scores companies in five ways, including the PAYDEX® score, which is performance-based. The remaining three scores predict and estimate future company behavior. Creditors use these scores for loan approval and to set interest rates.

Who the Dun and Bradstreet Report Is Right For

The Dun & Bradstreet report is best for both business owners and creditors looking for detailed business information. Companies that want financing through loans or other means will need an established credit history. The D&B credit report is a great resource for potential business partners and creditors looking to verify company history, business age, and financial trustworthiness.

Companies that have a Dun & Bradstreet credit profile also have a nine-digit D-U-N-S® Number. Requesting a D-U-N-S® Number is free, but businesses that opt for the five-day expedited delivery will have to pay $229 for it. Dun & Bradstreet also offers four different service packages, one of which offers free credit report access for seven days. Services with longer access times start at $149.

A Dun & Bradstreet report can either be self-generated or generated by a third party. Like your personal credit, your Dun & Bradstreet report improves with solid payment history, well-managed credit balances, and accurate business information. Companies making late payments to vendors will have that activity listed on their D&B report, which will negatively impact credit scores.
