Richard Martin
Principal - Melbourne

Richard is a Principal in our Business Advisory division, based in the Melbourne office.

Richard is an experienced adviser, providing his clients with trusted advice in relation to tax and accounting solutions. Richard services a broad range of clients from private to family groups, to enterprises in the SME and large corporate spaces. 

"One of the most enjoyable parts of my work is hearing from business owners who are passionate about their business. Given the nature of Business Advisory, we are often able to develop long-term relationships with our clients and support them along their journey."

Richard is a self-confessed neat freak and has great attention to detail,  admitting this often drives his wife mad at home.  

At both high school and university,  Richard worked in pizza shops. He did everything from making the dough and the pizzas to deliveries and managing the store. Richard believes it was here that he developed a strong work ethic, providing him with valuable insight into how a small business operates.

Richard is a diehard sports fan but his real passion is cars. He believes "car talk" is like a different language and people who have never met before can often talk about them for hours.



  • Assisted a family business based in Melbourne expand its operations to the USA and NZ. Working with RSM’s other service lines, Richard was able to assist the client with restructuring, capital raising, valuations, international transfer pricing and audit. The team was also able to introduce their overseas operations to like-minded trusted advisers that were part of the RSM international network.
