GENERAL PROVISIONS

Section 1 - MC – No-2015-06 PFRF


Section 2 – Statement of Policy
It is hereby declared a policy of this Authority to
promote the principle of transparency and
accountability in the Financial Reporting of
cooperatives to protect the interest and welfare of their
members and other stakeholders

It was developed from the Philippine Financial


Reporting Standards (PFRS) for Small and Medium-
Sized Enterprise (SMES).
The objective of financial
statements of a cooperative is to
provide information about the financial
condition, performance and cash flows
of the cooperative that is useful for
economic decision-making.
1.Understandability
1 – comprehensible
presentation of Financial Statement
2. Relevance – Quality of relevance ; helping the
decision maker evaluate past, present or
future events
3. Materiality – information is material, therefore
has relevance (misstatement and its
omission)
4. Reliability – the information provided in the
financial statement must be reliable. Free
from material error and bias.
5. Prudence - inclusion of the degree of caution
in the exercise of the judgments needed in making
the estimates required under the conditions of
uncertainty, such that assets or income are not
overstated and liabilities or expenses are not
understated. It does not permit bias
6. Comparability – comparative performance of
financial statements must be observe to identify
trends in financial condition and performance.
7. Substance over form – substance is much given
an emphasis rather than its form to enhance
reliability of financial statements
Recognition is the process of incorporating in the
financial statements an item that meets the definition
of an asset, liability, income or expense and satisfies
the ff criteria:
1. It is probable that any future economic benefit
associated with the item will flow
2. 2.The item has a cost or value that can be measured
reliably
Measurement is the process of determining the
monetary amounts at which a cooperative measures assets,
liabilities, income and expenses in its financial statements.
(2) Two common measurement bases are historical cost and
fair value:
Section 8 Accrual basis
Financial Statement shall prepare using accrual basis of
accounting. Allowance for probable losses on receivables
shall be the bases on the past due amount using portfolio at
risk for purposes of prudence in financial reporting
Section 12 - A cooperative shall not offset assets and
liabilities, or income and expenses unless required or
permitted by this framework.
Accounting Policies - are the specific principles, bases,
conventions, rules and practices applied by a cooperative in
preparing and presenting financial statements.
