The accounts that are chosen are the ones that would be the most important to financial statement users, and may include cash, lines of credit, and intangibles. The other accounts that are looked at are only sampled, usually due to the high volume of transactions in these accounts; these accounts would include accounts payable and inventory. Because the other accounts are only sampled there is a materiality figure associated with these.
