But receiving a bill proves the point that Serafe are getting and using out of date (by at least 6 months, possibly more) data from town halls.
It was reported in the local press that Serafe don't actually get the address information directly from the commune registers, but they access a federal register "centralised by all the cantons". It said that the cantons transmit the modifications made by the communes once a month. It didn't clarify how frequently the cantonal authorities are updated by the communes. Having several steps in the chain must increase the likelihood of errors, in addition to introducing delay.
