We study constraints and implications of the recent LHCb measurement of Bs→μμ for tree-level Higgs-mediated flavor-changing neutral current (FCNC) interactions. Combined with experimental data on Bs mass difference , the h→μτ, and the h→ττ decay branching ratios from the LHC, we find that the Higgs FCNC couplings are severely constrained. Current data allow large CP violation in the h→ττ decay. Consequences of the Cheng-Sher ansatz for the Higgs Yukawa couplings are discussed.
