Everton are at risk of suffering another points deduction if they are found to have breached spending rules in their next set of accounts, according to reports.
Earlier this month, the Toffees were deducted 10 points for breaching Premier League profit and sustainability rules, which plunged the Toffees into 19th in the table.
The club were referred to an independent commission in March for alleged breaches which related to the 2021-22 season and a hearing took place last month.
Now, according to The Times, Everton are preparing to submit their accounts from the 2022-23 season to the Premier League – with a deadline set for December 31st.
The outlet claim that under new regulations brought in during the summer, breaches of financial rules will be fast-tracked and dealt with before the end of the season.

Earlier this month, the Premier League pushed for a sizable points deduction for Everton, in order to set a precedent after the club were charged with breaching financial rules back in 2021-22.
The Toffees posted staggering financial losses of almost £372million over a three-year period.
