    Assuming that your fields are of type time: if you subtract times, the result is a duration. So if you want to compare the result with a value, you need to use #duration , like this:

    Code:
    =if ([DeliveryTime]-[SUBMISSION_TIME])<#duration (0,0,0,0) then [DeliveryTime]-[SUBMISSION_TIME]+#duration (1,0,0,0) else [DeliveryTime]-[SUBMISSION_TIME]

    Specializing in Power Query (M).
    Using Excel 2007 (Dutch) and Excel 2016 (Office 365 ProPlus) (Dutch/English), both on Windows 10.
    Array formulas can be recognised by the {} Excel puts around it automatically when you press Ctrl+Shift+Enter upon formula entry.

    Alternative solution:

    Code:
    =#time(0,0,0) + ([DeliveryTime] - [SUBMISSION_TIME]) - #time(0,0,0)
