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.
Organised chaos in other words.
Town halls may be transmitting their updates as infrequently as once a year given that, firstly, this is all new, extra work for them that they did not have before and secondly, that the charge is yearly.
I would assume though that you are only liable to pay it up to the end of the month in which you leave the country.
