Change this sentence into reported speech, please!

He said, "If I had much money, I would start my own business".

Welcome to Using English.
You will find that we don't answer questions like this. If you tell us what you think the answer is, we will comment.

Start with "He said that..." and then complete the sentence.

I think here it doesn't change. My answer is "He said that if he had much money, he would start his own business".

Correct.

Incidentally, the original sentence would be more natural with 'enough' or 'a lot of' in place of 'much'.
