Thanks that formula worked great, but what would the formula be for anything over 30 minutes rather 60?

You can see my additional comment in your previous question for more explanation. Basically, change the TIME(1,0,0) part, which is in the format TIME(hour,minute,second). For 30 minutes, the formula would look like this:

=HOUR(MAX(B1-A1-TIME(0,30,0),0))*60+MINUTE(MAX(B1-A1-TIME(1,0,0),0))

Note that the cell where this formula is in must not be in "Date" format, otherwise you'll get a bunch of nonsense.

i HAVE JUST TRIED THIS AND WHEN I THEN PUT IN START TIME10:00, END TIME10:32 THE RESULT IS BLANK WHEN I ACTUALLY NEED IT TO BE 2!  i.e. The first 30 minutes are included in cost, any additional minutes are charged.

Looks like you figured out my mistake, judging from your comment in the other question. As you've said, it should actually be like this:

=HOUR(MAX(B1-A1-TIME(0,30,0),0))*60+MINUTE(MAX(B1-A1-TIME(0,30,0),0))

I only changed the first TIME() call, without reading the whole line again. The second TIME() call also needed to be changed.
