So the answer has it so that there is no bracket between the SO4 and the Cl, but in the toolbox 17.1 adds the bracket in between the last ligand and the anion so which one is correct?

Everything in the brackets is part of the coordination complex. The anion (or cation, as the case may be) outside of the brackets is merely a counterion to maintain charge neutrality of the complex salt.
