Unless you're referring to Phillipines-specific accounting practices, you should be able to meet all of your needs using one of the many SaaS or on-premise accounting options available worldwide.

For personal accounting I would suggest a SaaS options like Mint, Wave, or Xero. Also check out our summary of online options for personal accounting here.

I know for a fact that many accountants in the Philippines use either the U.S. or UK version of Quickbooks. Last I heard there's a bit of a tradeoff depending on which version you use: the U.S. version can handle multicurrency transactions, but doesn't support value-added tax; the UK version can factor in VAT, but doesn't support multicurrency. If you're interested in pursuing Quickbooks I'd recommend you contact a Philippines-based reseller like Quickbooks Philippines to find out what the situation is with the most current versions.
