(b) furnish to the Commissioner a written statement, in the approved form, showing:

112(3)   [Where Commissioner may substitute estimate]  

Where, having regard to information in returns furnished by the employer and any other information in the Commissioner ' s possession, the Commissioner has reason to believe that the amount of tax that will be payable by the employer in respect of the year of tax is greater than the employer ' s estimate:

(a) the Commissioner may estimate the amount that, in the Commissioner ' s opinion, should have been the amount estimated by the employer pursuant to subsection (1) in respect of that year of tax; and

(b) the estimated tax is:

(i) an amount equal to the amount of tax so estimated by the Commissioner; or

(ii) the amount that would be the notional tax amount of the employer in respect of the year of tax if the employer had not furnished a statement under subsection (1);
whichever is the less.
