As they have gone into liquidation If you are an employee of the company then you may be entilted to be paid some of your entitlements under the Fair Entitlements Guarantee scheme.
The payments are limited though. Any payments they cannot give you become a debt under the liquidation and you will be dealing with the liquidator.
In relation to Superannuation Guarantee and PAYG tax the directors are personally liable and you can contact the ATO to lodge a complaint.
The stock you cannot retain as it belongs to the company and you should be handing that to the liquidator as it is an asset to be liquidated.
If you are a contractor then you are a creditor and you can only deal with the Liquidator.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance.
