Our community reporter — The city of Waltham in the State of Massachusetts is home to the largest concentration of Ugandans living in North America, great universities like Brandeis and colleges like Bentley are partly responsible for Waltham’s diversity. Ugandans living and working in this historical town once described by the Boston Globe as ‘little Kampala’ have flourished and blossomed in their businesses that range from restaurants offering catering services, healthcare, education, online radio stations, saloons to areas offering spiritual services. This growth has also led to the birth of professional services that help community members grow and expand their business models while providing the necessary tax education.

And so come Saturday 28th November the Ugandan community in Waltham will be treated to an interactive give back forum featuring Multi Professional Consultants. This event that will also double as an MPC community appreciation day is meant to bring the community together in the spirit of thanksgiving.

According Dr. Micheal Kisembo the Ugandan community has grown prompting the community to undergo a change. We now have Ugandan elderly community of those baby boomers who arrived in the early 80s and the youth movement has now grown to form a league of their own. This growth has also come with some vices picked up in the community like drug use and other problems. Dr. Kisembo there sees this open dialogue as one way to instill a work ethic, discipline and focus among the youth.

This year’s forum will also offer career guidance and together with the International Women of Uganda – Boston chapter MPC hopes to increase awareness about career guidance and counselling services available to the Uganda Boston community. MPC as a company has grown although 80% of their clientele is non Uganda includes Asians, Russians, Indians, Haitians and Brazilians.

MPC as a company specializes in a wide range of services that include Accounting, auditing, documentation and notary, Preliminary immigration services, Translation of documents, Project planning and Analysis to mention but a few. The MPC staff is also fully trained in CPA and IRS agent training including representing clients in the Tax court.
On where he sees MPC going Dr. Kisembo says they are expanding to Uganda now that some of their clients are moving back home to set up new businesses and building their retirement homes.

MPC is also diversifying into Healthcare sector that is growing rapidly with many offering services in the sector with no skill training or healthcare background. This growth has led to companies with virtually no accounting experience to handle huge operational budgets ranging from 500,000 dollars to 7 million dollars in the State of Massachusetts.

Currently MPC employs 6 full time staffers but during their peak tax season these numbers doubles to 12 employees. All employees have an opportunity to pursue a CPA course at the company expense including the annual IRS exam that will be a requirement in 2016 to all those representing tax related clients.
