I believe the way the rules are now, if a 12 point deduction after 46 games doesn't put them into the bottom three, they start next season on -12 and keep all this season's points. Assuming of course that their appeal against any deduction is dismissed.
The 12 point deduction is only carried over to next season if they actually finish in the bottom 3 before the deduction is made. If they finish outside the bottom 3 the deduction is made, if they are enough points clear they will stay up.
