SQL Link SQL Statement to table to get a name

Hi
How do I alter the following SQL so that it links to a table called Customers to get [Customer Name]
(The Table Customers has CustomerID,[Customer Name]....)

select
 CustomerID, sum(amount) amount
 from
  (
    select [Link ID] CustomerID, Amount * -1 As Amount from payments
    union all
    select customerId, [inv amt] from invoices
 ) SubQuery
 group by CustomerID

You're welcome.

D'OH, I didn't add the name to the GROUP BY (just to be clear to anyone else looking at this):

group by SubQuery.CustomerID, c.[Customer Name]
