QPR and the Football League have confirmed the club are in the process of contesting a potentially massive fine for breach of Financial Fair Play rules.
Rangers chairman Tony Fernandes has long made it clear they would challenge the legality of any draconian punishment.
A joint statement issued by QPR and the League read: “Legal proceedings are ongoing between Queens Park Rangers and the Football League.
“QPR challenges the legality of the Football League’s Championship Financial Fair Play rules and any charge against QPR (if any) for breach of FFP rules shall not be commenced pending the outcome of that challenge.
“The proceedings are confidential in nature and neither party is entitled to comment upon the proceedings until the independent arbitral panel has delivered its decision.”
Rangers’ relegation back to the League was confirmed when they were beaten 6-0 by Manchester City on Sunday.
