    Default EIN / DUNS Info

    When we went to have our tax forms made out for our department this year (which is something we have never done in the past) we used our EIN and found out that since we hadn't used it in 6 years that they discontinued it and we had to apply for a new EIN. So we have the new EIN (which is still puzzling, but ok) but is there anything else we need to change that would be linked to the old EIN? What about the DUNS number is that linked to the EIN? What about our previous awards do we need to contact anyone to let them know that it changed? Just realized that the EIN would affect the grants last night, so trying to figure out if we have to do anything or not.

    Thanks,

    Ryan

    The DUNS record will need to be updated, but you shouldn't need a new one of those. They can just tie the new one to the current DUNS. And if they can't then it's still an easy operation. For the older stuff just mark the records and make a note that the number has changed, and if the auditor comes around let them know that. Odds are they didn't know it was discontinued either, it's just there for to be a unique identifier so as logn as it exists they don't seem to care much.

    Good, that's what I had thought and was hoping for, but like to have the reassurance from someone else.

    Just FYI, I called D&B and they stated they didn't need to know the new EIN
