BE NAICS PROUD
Let everyone know that you are a Kansas manufacturer! NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) is a code system that classifies your business by industry.
Why should you get a manufacturing NAICS Code?
NAICS codes are used by local, state and federal entities for statistical purposes as well as for non-statistical reasons that can benefit you:
•Tax incentives that are industry specific
•Often required for commercial loans
•Savings on worker’s compensation premiums
Here are the steps to getting or updating a NAICS code to D&B. It is simple and free.
