An AOP means a group of persons (whether individuals, HUF, companies, firms, etc.) who join together for common purpose(s). Every combination of person cannot be termed as AOP. It is only when they associate themselves in an income-producing activity then they become AOP.

Whereas, BOI means a group of individuals (individual only) who join together for common purpose(s) whether or not to earn income. 

Co-heirs, co-donees, etc joining together for a common purpose or action would be chargeable as an AOP or BOI. In case of income of AOP, the AOP alone shall be taxed and the members of the AOP cannot be taxed individually in respect of the income of the AOP In case of income of AOP, the AOP alone shall be taxed and the members of the AOP cannot be taxed individually in respect of the income of the AOP

Difference between AOP and BOI

In case of BOI, only individuals can be the members, whereas in case of AOP, any person can be its member i.e. entities like Company, Firm etc. can be the member of AOP but not of BOI.

In case of an AOP, members voluntarily get together with a common will for a common intention or purpose, whereas in case of BOI, such common will may or may not be present.
