The Beginning.

Courts genesis goes back to the day when the then conglomerate Burns Philp (South seas) Co Ltd incorporated its business in Fiji in June 1920. A comparatively large public company was incorporated in
Fiji styled Burns Phillip (South seas) Co Ltd with an issued share capital of £ 750,000, to acquire the assets of the parent Burns Philp Co Ltd and its business interests in Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, Gilbert and Ellice, New Hebrides, British Solomon Islands, etc.. Burns Philp (S.S.) Co Ltd, went on to expand and open branches in major cities and towns in Fiji.



In February 1971, Courts PLC – a then UK-based public company, incorporated Courts (Fiji) Limited and commenced trading operations in Fiji by opening its first store in Samabula. Courts were the first business to introduce easy payment consumer loans that enabled countless families in Fiji to purchase much-desired household goods that improved lifestyles and standards of living. Courts is endeared in the memories of families in all far-flung corners of the Fiji archipelago.


Courts (Fiji) Limited acquired the Business of Burns Philip Homecentres.


Courts (Fiji) Limited and Burns Philip Homecentres businesses merged and the business carried on as Courts Fiji Limited Homecentres.


In May 2006, the company was acquired by the Vision Group comprising the four founder shareholders, Jacks of Fiji, RC Manubhai, Challenge Engineering, and Candle Investments. Subsequently, the word ‘Homecentres’ was dropped, and today the business carries on the proud tradition of “Courts”. Twenty-sixteen was another milestone year, when on February 29 of that year, Courts became a division of Vision Investments Limited, a thriving and successful public listed company with shareholders such as the Fiji National Provident Fund, Unit Trust of Fiji, BSP Life, Fijian Holdings Unit Trust and International Finance Cooperation (an affiliate of the world bank), in addition to the four Vision Group founder shareholders. The same year Vision Finance Limited was established.



Best Buys for Business (Courts) was established and SportsWorld was acquired.
