Notes to answerer
Asker: Sorry but this is not actually the case in Colombia. Withholdings are generated when an employee has an income; money is withheld from the employee. "Parafiscales" however, are other contributions made by the EMPLOYER, and they cover things like national education funds, government sports funds and others.

quasi-taxes or quasi-fiscal contributions


Explanation:
In reality, these are employer social-service contributions not specifically tied to any individual employee.

...The parafiscales are mandatory taxes established by law, which affect a certain and unique social or economic group and are used for the benefit of that same sector”. These ***quasi-fiscal contributions*** are imposed on the payrolls of employers, and are used to finance the Instituto Colombiano de Bienestar Familiar (the Colombian Institute for Family Welfare, or ICBF), the Servico Nacional de Aprendizaje (the National Training Service, or SENA), and the Cajas de Compensación. In total, collections from these parafiscales are substantial, amounting to over 1 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The structural of the main payroll taxes are discussed, followed by an analysis of their likely effects and then by some policy recommendations

I know this tax is for Colombia, but here is the usage of "quasi-tax"

Taxation in France is determined by the yearly vote of the budget by the French Parliament, which determine what kind of taxes (or ***quasi-taxes***) can be levied and which rates can be applied.

Tax-like


Explanation:
I think it is reasonable suggestion.

Tax-like is used also to serve as an adjetive:
www.economicexpert.com/5a/Tax.htm
a tithe - a tax, or more precisely a tax-like payment, (one tenth of one's earnings or agricultural produce), paid to the Church

Imposition of an excise tax-like payment may facilitate collusion in price among competing companies
http://tc.bmjjournals.com/cgi/content/full/13/4/356

From property taxes between the general fund and the debt service fund, they take out roughly $228.8 million of property taxes, but that only represents about 46% of the tax-like money that's pulled out of the community, which means there's 54% more

Except in those cases where there is a tribal casino that's actually paying a tax-like payment.

The very idea of reducing the tax and payroll-tax-like contribution burden to stimulate economic growth would then be jeopardized.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you very much. Eventually we went for non-fiscal contributions. "Parafiscales" are contributions - different from withholdings - made by the EMPLOYER, and they cover things like national education funds, government sports funds and others.


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
neutral  marybro: Saludos, Antonio. I agree this is a great suggestion as an adjective, but here the term is referring to a noun, i.e. payments...I think tax-like "contributions/payments" is better in this context.
