Philippe Dedobbeleer is a graduate in “Public Management” from the Solvay Brussels School and began his career in 1992 in the Federal Public Service Finance, where he held various positions.
In 2004, Philippe was involved in creating the Transfer Price Control Unit. From 2010 to 2015 he was a member of the College of the Rulings Service (ruling), in which he was mainly concerned with files relating to transfer prices, patent income deduction and restructurings.
