The reason is that the present perfect is referring to the present, looking back at the past. Imagine I have bought a phone. When have I bought the phone? Well, the purchasing may have happened last week, but as of right now I have bought the phone. The present perfect says that "right now, it is the case that something happened in the past." (8-})
There'r a lot of tenses that are more complicated than this. We should know how to distinguish the present perfect to the present perfect continuous, as well as the future simple to the near future. Sometimes i get stuck with these. Poor me :(
