The transitions $B_{s,d}\rightarrow \ell^+\ell^-$ (for $\ell=e, \mu, \tau$), although extremely suppressed within the SM, are exceptionally clean channels particularly sensitive to New Physics contributions. So far only the branching ratio for the process $B_{s}\rightarrow \mu^+\mu^-$ has been measured experimentally and, although the results are in agreement with the SM prediction, there is still room for NP effects. Here we provide an overview of the theoretical status of rare decays. We present strategies that can allow us to discriminate between different NP scenarios. Finally, we include a discussion of the effects of nontrivial new CP violating phases on the observables associated with $B_{s}\rightarrow \mu^+\mu^-$.
