The structure of the title dimethyltin(IV) complex, [2-(5-bromo-2-oxidobenzylideneamino)benzoato-?3 O,N,O']-dimethyltin(IV), [Sn(CH3)2(C14H8BrNO3)], features centro-symmetric dimers disposed about a central Sn2O2 core. Each Sn centre has seven-coordinate pentagonal-bipyramidal geometry, taking into account two moderately long Sn-O contacts about an inversion centre [2.679 (4) and 2.981 (4) Å]. The methyl groups are in an axial orientation.
