Abstract: The title compound, C4H6ClNO3, crystallizes with two independent mol­ecules (A and B) in the asymmetric unit. In each mol­ecule, there are N-H...O and N-H...Cl hydrogen bonds. Both mol­ecules are relatively planar, with the mean plane of the acetamide [N-C(=O)C] group being inclined to the mean plane of the acetate group [C-C(=O)O] by 9.23 (13)° in mol­ecule A and 6.23 (12)° in mol­ecule B. In the crystal, adjacent mol­ecules are linked by O-H...O hydrogen bonds and weak C-H...O contacts forming -A-A-A- and -B-B-B- parallel chains propagating along the a-axis direction.
