During 1990s when the accounting profession was taking shape in Uganda and there was a steady recovery of the economy, the profession regulation and economy recovery created demand for professional solutions to complex business challenges.

In August 1993, Peter Rutaremara, a Rwandan refugee living in Kampala Uganda and Mathias Tumwesigye a Uganda National established an accounting firm under the name RUMA CPA. The acronym "RUMA" stands for initials of our founders' names: RU (Rutaremara) and MA (Mathias).

After 1994 Rwanda genocide, Peter Rutaremara returned to his home country and registered RUMA CPA on 31 October 1996 as indicated on the Certificate of Registration No. RCA 6133/KG. RUMA CPA retained its vision and core values despite the Rwanda and Uganda firms being independent from each other.

RUMA CPA is now among the leading indigenous Consultancy and Accounting firms in Rwanda and its Managing Partner, Peter Rutaremara, was elected the first President of the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Rwanda (ICPAR) on 7 February 2009 to spearhead the practice and grow the profession in Rwanda.
