INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING BUSINESS LICENSE APPLICATION FORM
PLEASE READ. THIS INFORMATION IS IMPORTANT AND MAY AFFECT YOUR BUSINESS LICENSE.
MAKE SEPARATE APPLICATION FOR EACH BUSINESS TO BE LICENSED AT EACH LOCATION. COMPLETED APPLICATION FORM MUST ACCOMPANY REMITTANCE.
Verify accuracy of information and make corrections where necessary. Business License fees are due June 1 or before commencing business. Any Business License not renewed by June 30 becomes delinquent and
a penalty of 5% for each month is added until the Business License fee and penalty is paid in full. ALL Business License applications are reviewed by the License Official and NEW business license applications must be
approved by applicable City Departments which include but are not limited to Zoning Division, Construction Services Dept., Fire Dept., and Police Dept., before the business license is issued. A completed business contact
form, responsible persons form, and federal or state issued photo identification is required and is a part of the NEW business license application before the business license can be issued. Business License applications are
subject to audit and verification of gross income by examination of income tax returns and documents filed with Federal, State, and local government agencies. Additional records may be required if a specific request is
made. If an audit shows that any person, firm, or business entity has submitted or filed a false or untrue statement, the cost of the audit as well as any unpaid license fee and penalty will be due and payable to the City of
Myrtle Beach. This application form is not a business license. If you need disability-related accommodations, please contact Mary McDowell with the City of Myrtle Beach at (843) 918-1200.
Line 16:
LEGAL NAME OF BUSINESS ENTITY, LEGAL FORM OF ENTITY, AND CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP
Write the legal name of the business entity and the legal form of the entity. Examples of legal forms of entities are Sole Proprietorship, Partnership, Corporation, LLC, LLP, etc.
A BUSINESS LICENSE IS NOT TRANSFERABLE WITH A CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP. A transfer of controlling interest shall be considered a termination of the old business and the establishment of a new business
requiring a new business license dating back to the time of change and based upon old business gross income. Penalty is applied to a new business that fails to obtain the license at the time ownership changes. Any
change to your business that is NOT an ownership change must be reported to the Business License Office within ten (10) days of the change date.
Line 21: BUSINESS CLOSED, BUSINESS SOLD, or BUSINESS NO LONGER CONDUCTED IN THE CITY
.
Write the date your business closed, was sold, or stopped working in the City. Sign the application and return to the Business License Office to avoid penalty
Line 22: GENERAL CONTRACTORS, SUBCONTRACTORS, TRADESMEN, and SIGN COMPANIES
If line 22 is marked 333 or 555, you pay your license on the “pay by the job” system. The “pay by the job” system requires you to pay an update fee each time you pull a permit or work in the City. An update fee is the rate
charge shown on the face of this form and is computed on each $1,000 of your gross contract price. Update fees are charged after you have paid the base fee and met the first $2,000 in gross contract value. Update fees
may be paid by mail or in person. If line 22 is marked 333 or 555, report any jobs in the prior year that did not require a permit on line A and renew your license on June 1. Do not list the gross income for the jobs on which
update fees have already been paid. Permits can not be processed in the new license year until your business license has been renewed. Additional Note: Please call SCLLR in Columbia, SC for any state licensing
changes that may affect your business. The phone number for SCLLR is (803) 896-4686.
Step 12: DECAL FEE—REQUIRED FOR COIN-OPERATED AMUSEMENT/VENDING MACHINES, GAME TABLES, or LIMOUSINES
A decal is required to be visibly affixed on each amusement/vending machine and game table physically located in the city limits and on the windshield of each limo operating within the city limits.
The owner of the machine, game table, or limo is required to purchase the decal. In the appropriate space, list the number of machine(s), game table(s), or limo(s) owned.
Decal A
$ 2.50 ea. Mechanical vending machine selling one product per machine.
Decal B
$ 12.50 ea. Electrical vending machine or any machine selling more than 1 item per machine OR amusement machine: Video Games, Jukebox, Pinball, etc.
Decal BP or Limo
$ 5.00 ea. Pool or billiard table, foosball table, skeeball machine, or other game table OR each vehicle that is State licensed as a limousine.
NEW LICENSE AND RENEWAL INSTRUCTIONS
Physical location marked on line 20 determines the business license rate. IN CITY: Physical location or principal place of the business is within the city limits. OUT OF CITY: Physical location is not within the city limits;
however, business IS conducted within the city limits. The physical street address on line 19 determines In City or Out of City. License renewal is based upon prior calendar or fiscal year gross income or a 12 month project-
ed gross income based upon average monthly gross income for a business in operation less than one year.
1st License Year:
Write a conservative but reasonable estimate of gross income from the beginning business date until following May 31 on Line A.
2nd License Year:
Write annualized gross income by using either scenario 1 or 2, whichever applies to your business on Line A.
Scenario 1. Business that opened between February and December of the prior calendar year:
Divide the actual gross income earned between February 1st and December 31st by the number of months in business and multiply by 12.
Scenario 2. Business that opened between January and May of the current calendar year:
Divide the actual gross income earned between January 1st and May 31st by the number of months in business and multiply by 12.
Future License Years: Write actual gross income earned in the prior 12 month calendar or fiscal year on Line A.
Note: If business opened during prior calendar year, follow instructions for scenario 1 as shown above.
Deductions or Exemptions from License Fee Computation:
The amount of gross income reported to another city or county for which a business license fee was paid. Write this amount on line B.
The amount of State and Federal sales and excise taxes, that have been included in gross income. Write this amount on line B.
The amount of escrowed funds or funds which are the property of a third party that have been included in gross income. Write this amount on line B.
The amount of gross income not earned in the city limits if your office location on line 20 is marked out of city. Write this amount on line B.
