In the title compound, C16H12BrFO3S, the 4-fluorophenyl ring makes a dihedral angle of 72.35 (5)° with the mean plane [r.m.s. deviation = 0.008 (1) Å] of the benzofuran fragment. In the crystal, molecules are linked into  chains via two different inversion-generated pairs of C-HO hydrogen bonds. The crystal structure also exhibits slipped - interactions between the benzene rings of neighbouring molecules [centroid-centroid distance = 3.667 (2) Å and slippage = 1.341 (2) Å], and between the benzene and the furan rings of neighbouring molecules [centroid-centroid distance = 3.759 (2) Å and slippage = 0.757 (2) Å].
