Calculations are sometimes silently ignored. Try this:

Cell A2: 07:00
Cell B2: 
Cell C2: =IF((B2-A2)>TIME(8;44;0);"0:45";IF((B2-A2)>TIME(6;29;0);"0:30";IF((B2-
Cell D2: =B2-A2-C2

That's it. Result incorrectly 
shows 09:20 when it should be 08:35 (correct in excel).

Hi Hundri Magusin,

this is not a bug ! Calc doesn't calculate with text values. 

Your IF Statements set the time values as Text ("0:45"). If you set
these values without quotationmarks, you will get numbers as the
function result and the correct value in D2.

So I have to close it but set it as duplicate to Issue 5658 which
deals with the same case.

Best regards
