I ran into this question today when responding to a business letter. It turns out either is fine when used as an adverb. From the Grammerly blog:


A century ago, it was standard to write any time as two words in all contexts. But it’s now perfectly acceptable to write anytime as one word when you’re using it as an adverb. However, some readers still consider it a casualism, so you may want to stick to the two-word version for extremely formal writing.
