Danish term or phrase: indhandlingstræk
From an agreement made in Greenland between the Self Government and a slaughterhouse company: "Ved indhandlingstræk har Naalakkersuisut 1. prioritet."

I found this at

"Forskudsregistering for 2013

"Indhandling" (i.e., sales to a trading post or commercial enterprise) is listed among the types of income from business activity to be reported on the related form.

sales tax on catch

This is guessing but makes sense: "Indhandling" is the selling of caught fish, prawns, seal etc. . to the manufacturing companies. I believe it is an expression which is primarily used in Greenland (e.g
"Træk", I suppose, is the tax, you pay up front as in the word "Trækprocent".
It seems to be a special Greenlandic tax, on the same line as B-tax.
