How Much?

The Millennium bugs cost at least a $trillion but have only been fudged. 
The nerds knew it was going to happen and know it is going to happen
again unless a better system of expressing age, date and time is found. Worldwide Time is that system and can be incorporated into computers 
as an option ready to be switched on as soon as the politicians decide.       Digital calendars, timetables and diaries would be perpetual, and so save many trees, and decimal watches or clocks would be cheaper to make. 
They need to be replaced regularly anyway and are now so inexpensive  
that the cost of replacing them would be tiny in relation to the savings.     
Worldwide Space would be more expensive to adopt but there would be many benefits from a global system of currencies, weights and measures.       The enormous benefits for our planet and our human race are  incalculable.    

How Soon?

The Metric System was conceived three centuries ago and took a century
to be adopted by most of our world - except for Britain and the USA.        Britain has now adopted most of it but the USA still has its own system.   
In 1884 ACE, when our current time zones were established by the        International Meridian Conference in Washington DC, it was agreed that both Space and Time should be decimalised but, although most of us are    now using a decimal Space System, the decimalisation of Time was        forgotten or suppressed by stick-in-the-muds who never accept change.        The League of Nations and The United Nations both tried, but failed,
to introduce a global calendar and the International Standards Organisation failed to devise a year-day number system that can be built into watches.    
It would be best for the entire Worldwide System to be adopted globally at
one particular moment but there is no reason why parts of it could not be used by individuals, organisations or states before then.
