I see nothing wrong with the grammar, but it is a bit wordy.

I want to ask if it is okay for me to write 'As of the time of writing this report, I have finished ...'? Is it okay to say 'as of the time of doing something'?

"At the time" conveys the same message with fewer words.
There are no necessary "as of" constructions in English. Many are ambiguous; most are pointless.
* "As of yet, I haven't finished."
"I haven't finished yet."
"As of 2pm" can mean "At 2pm, since 2pm, or up until 2pm". I've never encountered a need to use "as of", at least as of yet.
"At this particular juncture in time" is a good way to say "now" in 6 words.
Thanks for all the responses to my question. I had always thought 'as of' is a popular phrase in English, yet it seems that I was wrong.
Not sure about 'popular'. Common maybe.
