    Concept Of General Purpose Financial Frameworks
    Objective of the General Purpose Financial Reporting

Name of the company: -
AMC Amcor Plc Materials.
Nature of Business: - Packaging Company.
About the company: - The company offers a range of packaging related
Products and services, including packaging for beverages, food, healthcare, and personal and home care, tobacco, and industrial applications. Its products include packaging for fresh foods, such as meat, fish,
ead, produce, and dairy and processed foods.
The company employees more than 55,000 people across the globe with operations in more than 40 countries and 250 sites. The global sales of the company reached a US $13 billion in the year ending 2019. The business model of the company has been constant and therefore it has a competitive advantage in the industry.
General Purpose Financial Framework is a set of summarised reports and statements that are published by the board of directors to the General public at large. GPFF provides the general observation in respect to the company's finances. GPFF is the means of communicating relevant and reliable information about the organization by the organization to the end-users. The basic purpose of preparation of the GPFF is to meet all the requirements of stakeholders, they are designed to meet the requirement of a wide range of financial information users. It is the accounting process by which financial and economic transactions and events are recorded and presented. It reduces the information gap between investors, creditors, lenders, and management (Reporting, F., 2010). General Purpose Financial Report has information about economic resources and claims that help in determining the liquidity position of the organization, solvency, and financial needs.
As we know that the AMC Amcor Plc is a listed company in various stock exchanges, the requirement of General Purpose Financial Frameworks are very high. GPFRs prepared to respond to the information need of the service recipient for accountability and decision-making purpose. Information contained in the GPFF should be relevant, information should be characterized as relevant if it make a difference in the decision-making process. Information should has faithful presentation, under stability, timeliness, and comparability.
There are four basic elements of the financial statements,
Assets-Assets is defined as a resource of an organization that is presently controlled by the organization and it generates the economic benefits for the organization.
Liability- It is a present obligation of the entity for cash outflow that derived from a past event.
Revenue- It increases the cash flow of the organization and other than from the capital infusion. It is recorded based on realization or confirmation of the realization.
Expense- It decreases the cash flow of the company other than from the distribution of dividends.
The following diagram describes the conceptual framework applicable in Australia:
The use of the GPFF depends upon the nature of the stakeholders; in our case, the AMC Amcor Plc has various stakeholders. If the user is creditors, then they are concern with the amount of supplies they made to the organization. If the user is a resource provider, such as mines given by the government, then they are more concerned with the use of those resources. If user is equity investor, they are more concern with the rate of return they are getting from the amount invested and more concern with the dividends, futures prospects and upcoming deals of the company, they can decide for invest, sale or hold the equity of the company.
If user is lender than they are more concern with the future cash flow of the company, plan of the company, how the company is using their funds, management response, timely re-payment of loans, interest accounting, etc. and if a user is a government than they are more concern with the applicability of rule and regulation on the organization and companies ways to follow these rules and regulation, timely payment of advances taxes and duties. This need for information can be divided into two different groups, namely business entity and non-business entity. Business entity's more focus on the financials of the company such as profit, sales, cash flow, etc. and non-business entities are pursuing more on non-financial activities such as environmental issues, local society, etc. However financial reporting is not...
