I think I must be missing something.
From memory, in the olden days, the difference between the lower and higher limit was the length of time a person could do permitted work for. As all permitted work can now be done indefinitely, why do we have a lower limit at all? Or, indeed, a supported limit?
What am I not considering?!!!

The £20 disregard only applies to certain royalty payments.  For everything else the higher limit is used.
