Italian term or phrase:oneri sociali gravanti
in the context of a firm's contractual social benefits payments
social security contributions, social security charges
Explanation: See "Dizionario Commerciale" di Livio Codeluppi, Editore Le Monnier/Le Lettere.
If it would be burdensome, it would rather be gravoso. Gravanti, I believe, of course depending on context is more likely to mean "to be paid".
