The Scottish Football Association has agreed to carry out an independent assessment of projected finances of a new merged league structure.
The SFA held talks with the Scottish Premier League and Scottish Football League on Tuesday after some lower division clubs appear to be uncertain over the proposals.
But the SFA have indicated they favour change in the league set up in an attempt to take the game forward in Scotland.
A statement from the governing body read: "The Scottish FA's position on league reconstruction is clear: Scottish football requires urgent, radical change in its league structures as a first, essential step to rejuvenating the national game.
"To that end, in order to provide greater comfort to both sides, we have agreed to undertake a period of due diligence on behalf of both the SPL and SFL to provide independent verification of projected distributable revenue of any single league body."
A meeting last week at Hampden between the SFL clubs saw 14 of the 29 clubs present indicate they would not be willing to approve the plans in time for next season.
