I think "are you finished" is American English whereas the second one " have you finished" is British English.

Have you finished? - meaning Have you finished your task? is grammatically correct.

Are you finished? is frequently heard and is in common usage.

Compare with - Are you ready? 

The question Are you finished? asks about the person , rather than the work.
