It is difficult to interpret exactly what you are trying to ask.

If you allow your five digit number to have leading zeroes and do not allow negative numbers, then

00000 - 99999 = -99999

is the smallest number.

If you do allow negative 5 digit numbers, then

(-99999) - 99999 = -199998

is the smallest number.
