In the title compound, C16H13ClO4, the two benzene rings make a dihedral angle of 86.38 (8)°. In the crystal, inter­molecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the mol­ecules to form columns along the a axis. The mol­ecules are also stabilized by a π–π stacking inter­action, with a centroid–centroid distance of 3.7793 (10) Å between the inversion-related benzene rings.
