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 [010] direction. Intra­molecular N—H⋯C inter­actions are also observed.
