6. You will be directed back to Growth Street, and you’ll now see the names of each account you have connected.

You should connect the account you would like to receive money from your GrowthLine, as well as every bank account* your business uses to receive payments from customers, make payments to suppliers, pay wages, bills, rent or other business expenses. You should also connect any business savings accounts which you regularly make transfers to and from.
