    It would relate to the $10k upper limit ($20k if both parties agree and file a Memorandum of Consent), as the Tribunal must discontinue claims that it has no power to hear. However, whether it relates to low-value claims is an open question, given that the tribunal has a degree of discretion. For instance, an excessively low-value claim might potentially be discontinued under the Small Claims Tribunals Act for being frivolous or vexatious.
