You could try to set the $TZ variable. I did not try on On-Rev/LivecodeHosting, but on a HostM Server which also has Livecode Server installed.

This script here for example would set the timezone first to Germany  and outputs the current time and then for New York.

< ? l c 
 put "Europe/Berlin" into $TZ
 set the twelvehourtime to false
put the time
 put "<br>"
 put "America/New_York" into $TZ
 set the twelvehourtime to true
 put the time
