Its never too late to do one as coming out of lockdown may create business challenges and opportunities, and you need to to ensure that you have the cash and resources to make the most of any opportunity.
As your business will have been in hibernation for a while and will face a different business environment, consider yourself a new start-up as you will already have a product or service that works, you just need to identify your customers, including any new ones and how you can meet their needs.
This will probably involve establishing if your old customers are still going to need your product, something that you will need to develop from existing lines, or a whole new line or service.
This will also be a chance to find new customers created by some of your competitiors not being around, or new markets opening up to you.
