The title complex salt, (C12H16NO2)[PdCl2(C12H14NO2)], is of inter-est with respect to organic and organometallic catalysis. The compound crystallizes as very small orange-red irregular prisms and the asymmetric unit contains three crystallographically distinct cation-anion pairs. The coordination geometry about the palladium atoms is square-planar with the chloride ligands cis to one another. The structure displays N-H⋯Cl and O-H⋯O hydrogen bonding such that the N-H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds align the cation-anion pairs in a linear fashion along , with the O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds connecting these linear strands along  and .
