Tools for Ultimate Recipient (UR) Lending

DUNS #
Does your Ultimate Recipient have a DUNS number? All RD-RLF Ultimate Recipients except individuals must have a Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) Data Universal Numbering Systems number ("DUNS number") when applying. If they already have a DUNS number, they don't need to get a new one. To obtain this number, the business must call D&B Federal Registration Department toll-free at 1-866-705-5711 and ask for a DUNS number. It free and takes only 5 minutes. A D&B agent will ask for some basic information and then assign a DUNS number over the phone. Do not be mislead by D&B's web site or order the number online, or you may be charged!
