Cash basis sales exceed bank receipts

I've just taken over bookkeeping responsibilities for a small client using the cash basis method of accounting. The P & L reflects a sales figure for January 1, 2015 through May 31, 2015 that considerably exceeds the company's deposits to its bank account.

What process do you suggest I follow to track down the cause for the discrepancy?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

If they are using AR, check the invoices and see if there are any Receive Payments linked to them dated BEFORE 1/1/2015.

I would examine the deposits, look for cash back or an expense or liability posting that reduces the amount deposited
