In the title compound, C15H10BrClO2S, the 4-bromophenyl ring makes a dihedral angle of 86.85 (6)° with the mean plane [mean deviation = 0.009 (2) Å] of the benzofuran fragment. In the crystal, molecules are linked by slipped π–π interactions between the benzene and the furan rings of adjacent molecules [centroid–centroid distance = 3.884 (2), interplanar distance = 3.369 (2) and slippage = 1.945 (2) Å], and between the 4-bromophenyl rings of adjacent molecules [centroid–centroid distance = 3.882 (2), interplanar distance = 3.552 (2) and slippage = 1.566 (2) Å]. A Br⋯Br [3.6446 (4) Å] halogen interaction is also observed.
