In the title compound, [Zn(CH3COO)(NCS)(C12H17BrN2O)], the ZnII atom is four-coordinated in a distorted tetra­hedral geometry, binding to a phenolate O and an imine N atom of the Schiff base ligand, the O atom of an acetate ligand and one thio­cyanate N atom. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked via pairs of N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming inversion dimers.
