I would recommend that you instead look at the Document Routing features in SharePoint 2010 instead of building custom code. See: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff608093.aspx I think the Document Routing can take care of all your requirements, without a single line of code :-)

  • I appreciate the suggestion Wictor and it's a great OOB functionality that SharePoint is offering. In my case though i need to do a little more than just move the documents. I also need to give item level permissions to user groups in the subsites. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Besides Wictor's solution you could also envision another no-code solution by using a SharePoint Designer 2010 Workflow with activity "Copy List Item".
