Whilst setting up your Apple - iOS developer account, we highly recommend businesses to setup this up "As an organisation"

In order to setup your Apple Developer Account as an organisation, you will require a D-U-N-S Number

You can view all details related to a D-U-N-S number here or read below:

What is a D-U-N-S Number?

D-U-N-S Number is a unique nine-digit number (standard business identifier) that identifies business entities on  - location-specific basis. This number is authorised, assigned and maintained by Dun & Bradstreet (D&B)

On part of the enrollment and verification process for your Apple Developer account as an organisation, your unique D-U-N-S Number will be used to ascertain and check the identity and legal entity status of your organization.

D-U-N-S Number is required if you're enrolling as a company, organisation etc. If you're registering as an individual on the Apple Developer Account, you may not require a D-U-N-S number

How to create / get a D-U-N-S number?

To view your organisation's D-U-N-S number, you can use the D-U-N-S Number look up tool

If you're registering first name for a D-U-N-S number, you will be asked for the following business information:

  • Legal name of your company / entity

  • Registered / headquarter address

  • Mailing address

  • Contact Information

You may also receive a verification call from the D&B team.

Note: Once you've completed setup for your D-U-N-S number, it takes up to 14 business days for D&B to provide updated information to Apple.
