In the title compound, [Sn(C6H5)3(C2H3OS2)], the SnIV atom adopts a distorted SnC3S tetrahedral coordination geometry. A short SnO contact [2.988 (4) Å] is also present. The phenyl rings are each disordered over two sets of sites with an occupancy ratio of 0.550 (8):0.450 (8). The crystal studied was found to be a racemic twin with a twin component ratio of 0.57 (18):0.43 (18).
