Scottish Championship club Livingston have been handed a transfer ban after allegedly defaulting on tax payments.
The punishment means that the Lions will be unable to sign any new players until the matter is resolved in full.
A spokesman for the Scottish Professional Football League said: "The SPFL has been provided with information by a Livingston Football Club director which indicates a default in relation to HMRC payments.
"Under SPFL rules an embargo on the registration of professional players is automatic in these circumstances."
Livingston kicked off their Championship campaign with a 2-1 loss at the hands of Hibernian on Saturday.
