London: Ranveer Singh Sandhu, a 15-year-old boy has been declared as the youngest accountant in Britain after he set up an accountancy firm while still in school. The Indian-origin teenager who is based out of South London set up his business at the age of 12 as he had set himself the goal of becoming a millionaire by the time he turned 25.
Sandhu’s social media profile reads, “Young Entrepreneur aged 15 living my best life and trying to make money.” The teenager says he was clear from the beginning that he wanted to mint money and become an accountant and financial adviser to help young entrepreneurs set their own businesses. At present, Sandhu charges 12 to 15 pounds per hour for his services. With this business, the teenager also boasts of ten clients.
While speaking to one of UK’s leading daily, Daily Mirror, he said, “It isn’t that hard juggling school and my business, I haven’t had that much stress. My plan for the future is to become a millionaire and expand my business.” Not only does Sandhu have a successful business, he has also created his own software to keep track of his clients’ accounts and was the winner of the Tech Business of the Year prize at the Ultra Education Kids Business Awards a few years ago.
Sandhu primarily works from home. It was in 2016 that the teenager set up his business Digital Accounts after completing an online accounting course to achieve a requisite Level 3 CPD Basic Accounting certificate at the age of 12.
Sandhu’s father, Aman Singh Sandhu is a builder, and his mother Dalwinder Kaur Sandhu works as an estate agent. Crediting his parents with his success, Sandhu said, “My parents have always helped me from the beginning. My ambition is to make quite a lot of money, expand my business and make it international while helping young people start their businesses at the same time.”
In the years to come, Sandhu plans to buy a new car once he gets his driving license and invest in property.
