Do we have to abide by the same financial rules as the EPL sides?

Was just listening to Villa basically having to sell one of their best players to avoid a points deduction for next season and that as a result Costa looks likely to head to Juventus in the summer. They have just had their best season in decades and qualified for the CL so where does that leave clubs like ours and what can we realistically spend in the summer without breaching the rules in place?

All these rules just seem to me to be in place to keep the “big teams” at the top for all time.
 
They are getting a great deal though, two players plus 20m for Costa regardless of FFP is a cracking deal

McKenzie and Iling Jnr being the players
 
The EPL has rules and so does UEFA. I'm not sure if the SPFL have them.

Villa is only one of six teams that need to sell by the end of this month. Chelsea, Aston Villa, Newcastle, Everton, Nottingham Forest and Leicester City are the teams. A couple of big teams (money-wise) in that list.
 
The current profit and sustainability rules (PSR) mean that a club is permitted to losses of £105 million over the course of three years. Unfortunately for Villa, a proposal put forward by the club and Crystal Palace to increase those allowed losses to £130 million was rejected as 15 clubs in the league voted against it. This means that Villa are lying dangerously close to the limit as the financial year end date of 30th June looms closer.

No those are the EPL rules. For financial fair play we only have to abide by UEFA rules which for 24/25 is 80% of turnover on player costs. We are not even close to that so financial fair play is of no concern.
It is indeed 80% for the forthcoming season, but there’s a bit more to it than just ‘player costs’ per se. It includes coaches and agents fees now as well, for example:

The new rule limits spending on player and coach wages, transfers and agent fees to 70% of club revenue. We will roll out the new threshold progressively: 90% in the 2023/24 season and 80% in 2024/25, before applying the permanent 70% ceiling from 2025/26. Breaches will result in predefined financial penalties as well as sporting measures.
