(2) If the Commissioner considers that the accounts kept are not sufficiently clear or intelligible to enable himto determine whether or not a hotelier is liable to tax during any period, or are so kept as not to enable a proper scrutiny of the returns or the statement furnished, the Commissioner may require such hotelier by notice in writing to keep such accounts in such form or manner as in his opinion is necessary for the purpose of proper assessment and as he may, subject to anything that may be prescribed in that behalf, in writing direct.
