Well done to the Low Countries. I should have mine turn up in Rotterdam or something and get a Ferry over! Any excuse to say hello to the Dutch!

Lol it's already my third check,
and on this board it seems that we from Belgium and the Netherlands are always the first folks that get their check.
By the way the check is dated 12-11-03

Where are checks printed?
In Europe or US?
It seems strange that the firsts checks arrives in Europe

Because it's still too early in the morning for mail delivery at most locations. I'm sure we'll here that some people in the U.S. have received their checks later today.

The checks have always been done in New York, it likely is a major exporter of internationl mail, which could be why those countries often report receiving their cheques quite early. I know I have to wait about a week after the first reports of a cheque receipt before I will actually see mine.

What date do the checks have on them?
| 4:25 pm on Dec 15, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Helps to read the entire thread. :)

Southern US checking in :)

I don't find it surprising that many in Europe receive checks before those in the US.
Your checks get on a plane immediately. Many of ours are driven by truck, and some of us live nearly as far from New York as, say, Londoners do.
If your checks fly 3500, and mine drive 3000, yours are going to get there sooner.

We in Europe, dont live on the airport :)
The check will come by air, but after that... it depends where are you living.

Yep I live near Liverpool. So the Google cheque flies from New York to London - then it gets sorted in London and put on a train for about 160 miles (if there's a mail strike on it gets stuck in London for a few weeks) to the Chester sorting office (as the first part of the postcode is CH). Then it gets sorted again by postal district (CH42) and the last part of the postcode. I presume it goes by road to Birkenhead, and then is delivered by foot once a day. In total that takes about 4 days from start to finish.
I prefer the Google way of sending out automatic cheques each month. I remember one business (in the next town just a few miles away) wrote out a cheque for one of my invoices, they then put it in a correctly addressed envelope, put a stamp on it and forgot to post it. :P I actually had to go there and pick it up.
Then a short time later they rang up checking to see if I'd cashed their cheque - I pointed out that I'd cashed it on the day I'd received it (their monthly bank account statement was a few days out of date) - and that cheques take three business days to clear.
Anyway - my policy now regarding payments is to collect it when I'm there - course it doesn't apply to Google as I trust them (and they're in a foreign country too).

Washington DC here - checks have arrived! just in time for last-minute christmas shopping :o)
| 9:15 pm on Dec 15, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Do you have any info on this issue?
| 9:28 pm on Dec 15, 2003 (gmt 0)|
What issue? If you mean you didn't get your check, you'll get it some time this week if you are in the U.S. If you are outside the U.S., then it will probably take as long as it typically does to receive mail from the U.S.

Got mine, whooohooo! (San Diego, CA)
| 10:11 pm on Dec 15, 2003 (gmt 0)|

I have not yet received mine, and I live in upstate NY. I am only about 225 miles from NYC. Strange!

To the lad in Liverpool. I'm Leeds, so we 'should' be the same day as they go up north.
Same again, New York to smelly London, train overnight (if they are in London today) arrive in Leeds in the morning. We'll see.

Does anyone know for tax purposes if we need to declare the Nov and Dec 2003 income in the year 2003 if we don't actually receive it till the year 2004? Just curious about that. It is earned in those months but they won't send the checks before end of calender year.
