(A)   The business license tax for each class of businesses subject to this chapter shall be computed in accordance with the current business license rate schedule, designated as Appendix A to this chapter, which may be amended from time to time by the Council.
   (B)   The current business license class schedule is set forth as Appendix B to this chapter. Hereafter, no later than December 31 of each odd year, the municipality shall adopt, by ordinance, the latest standardized business license class schedule as recommended by the Municipal Association of South Carolina and adopted by the Director of the South Carolina Revenue and Fiscal Affairs Office. Upon adoption by the municipality, the revised business license class schedule shall then be appended to this chapter as a replacement Appendix B.
   (C)   The classifications included in each rate class are listed with NAICS codes, by sector, subsector, group, or industry. The business license class schedule (Appendix B) is a tool for classification and not a limitation on businesses subject to a business license tax. The classification in the most recent version of the business license class schedule adopted by the Council that most specifically identifies the subject business shall be applied to the business. The license official shall have the authority to make the determination of the classification most specifically applicable to a subject business.
   (D)   A copy of the class schedule and rate schedule shall be filed in the office of the Town Clerk.
