The asymmetric unit of the title complex, [W(C7H7NS)(CO)5], comprises two independent molecules. In each, the W atom is coordinated by five CO groups and the S atom of the benzencarbothioamide ligand in a distorted octahedral geometry. The crystal packing can be described as undulating layers of W(CO)5 and benzenecarbothioamide parallel to (001). In the crystal, components are linked via intermolecular N—H⋯O and C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds to form a dimeric chains along the  direction. Intramolecular N—H⋯C interactions are also observed.
