Problems registering for Apple Developer Account and D-U-N-S Name

My company is registering for an Apple Developer account to be able to deploy MDM (Mobile Device Management) solution to IOS devices.  As part of the registration process you have to get your D-U-N-S Number from D&B register the company.  However, even though the rest of the information was correct, it kept failing on the company name not matching and we couldn’t submit the application.

The company name is “Kraft & Kennedy, Inc.” and that is the name that we have registered with Dun & Bradstreet and shows up in the D-U-N-S verification form on Apple’s web site.  However, you can’t put ampersands or commas into the Apple form for the company name.   After trying multiple variants of the company name the only thing that worked was substituting the ampersand with the word “and”, so we were able to get registered with “Kraft and Kennedy Inc.” on the Apple form.
