How can I get a small box at the right hand side of the document as in the figure below: enter image description here

My initial attempt failed:

\begin{flushright}
\begin{tcolorbox}
\textbf{Date:11/12/2018}\\
\textbf{Time: 2:30 PM}
\end{tcolorbox}
\end{flushright}

Thank you.

    Welcome to TeX.SE. While code snippets are useful in explanations, it is always best to compose a fully compilable MWE that illustrates the problem including the \documentclass and the appropriate packages so that those trying to help don't have to recreate it. – Peter Grill Dec 7 at 5:59

You can specify the text width=3cm, or use tcbox{} along with a table:

Notes:

  • The showframe package was used just to show the page margins. It is not needed in your actual use case.

Code:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{showframe}
\usepackage{tcolorbox}

\begin{document}

\begin{flushright}
    \begin{tcolorbox}[text width=3cm]
        \textbf{Date:11/12/2018}\\
        \textbf{Time: 2:30 PM}
    \end{tcolorbox}
\end{flushright}

\begin{flushright}
\tcbox[left=2pt,right=2pt]{%
    \bfseries
    \begin{tabular}{@{}ll@{}}
        Date: & 11/12/2018 \\
        Time: & 2:30 PM    \\
    \end{tabular}%
}%
\end{flushright}

\end{document}
