Unless you have a guarantee from the director that they will pay, you will not be able to claim from a deregistered company unless you can convince ASIC to reregister the company.

If they are registered again you can chase them. It is only if they are deregistered that you cannot.
If you do not have a guarantee from the director then you can only sue the company.
But is has to be registered.
If it has no assets and you can show that the director was aware that it had no money and kept trading then they can be liable for trading whilst insolvent. You will need to access their records and have an auditor look at them and tell you what the position was.
