UK's 'Youngest Accountant' Set Up His Business When He Was 12

UK's 'Youngest Accountant' Set Up His Business When He Was 12

While most school kids are watching their favourite YouTubers in between pretending to do their homework, one youngster was busy working away to become known as the country's 'youngest accountant'.

Ranveer Singh Sandhu, who is now 15, decided from a young age that his dream job was to work in accounts. It's probably not one of the most obvious choices for a 12-year-old, what with all the options available to you at that age, including astronaut and pro-footballer. But props to Ranveer for knowing what he wants.

After working towards an online accountancy course for six months, alongside his schoolwork, he set up his first company when he was just 12.

After getting the certificate, Ranveer set up his business Digital Accounts in June 2016 and then went on to launch his company Ranveer Singh Sandhu.

He even created his own software so his clients could keep track of their finances.

Three years on, and the savvy schoolboy has 10 clients, who he helps out with business advice and management of their finances. Obviously having given it some thought, he's even discovered a niche market in young entrepreneurs - just like himself.

Ranveer, who lives in Croydon, says he pays himself a small salary, but leaves the majority of the money he makes in his account in order to cover any outgoings. Very smart.

And given his entrepreneurial spirit, it's no surprise that London based Ranveer has set himself a goal. He wants to become a millionaire and retire by the ripe old age of just 25. He's even inspired his mates to follow in his footsteps.

Year 10 GCSE student Ranveer, who doesn't plan to go to university, said: "My friends first found it a bit unusual and then they said they wanted to do something similar and start up their own business."

Ranveer says he spends all his free time running his business, and usually works from his parents' house or their work, where he has an office set up.

The 15-year-old says that the way other young entrepreneurs can be like him is simple.

He added: "Do what you love, start your business early and make money."

Sound advice there, Ranveer.
