Matt Goude FCA


I’m Matt, founder and owner of ZincBooks. After qualifying as a Chartered Accountant in 2006, I enjoyed a successful career in commercial finance at Barclaycard, Carlsberg and Travis Perkins.

Before founding ZincBooks, I had always been passionate about delivering exceptional customer service to both customers and clients alike. I pride myself on being able to identify the issues and then delivering solutions to resolve those issues – in a way that’s down-to-earth and friendly.

I’ve learned to embrace the many and varied cloud-based accounting solutions. I always look for opportunities to save the clients time and money by implementing these solutions into clients’ processes.

Up-to-date financial information is key to helping clients stay in control of their business and ensures that the client receives the best and most appropriate tax advice possible.

I’m married with three children and am secretary of a local football club and am heavily involved in working with the committee to rebuild the current clubhouse and changing rooms.
