Immaterial

Describing any circumstance or outcome of little to no importance. For example, a price movement in a stock of a single penny one way or another is almost always immaterial to the company's continued operations.

immaterial

Of so little importance or relevance as to have no significant impact on an outcome. For example, a firm may be engaged in a lawsuit involving such an insignificant amount of money that the lawsuit's outcome will not appreciably affect the firm. Thus, the lawsuit and its potential results are immaterial to the preparation of the firm's financial statements. Compare material.
