If a UK company is paying the duty on goods for their overseas customer as part of the Incoterms DDP - does the duty have to be paid before the goods are released to the customer in Europe?

HMRC cannot answer questions on what requirements there are on other countries they deal with UK rules and regulations. You cannot generalise as each country will have its own method of charging duty and paying the duty. Mostly duty has to be a paid for or accounted for before a customs authority will release goods though. It also depends on what sort of import you are talking about it postal , through a courier, airfreight or a container load? I suggest you ask whoever is doing your customs clearance what options there are.
